Nature

I walked down the street and noticed the smell
before I noticed the dead body surrounded with
flys and covered with maggots and hard to distinguish
exactly what animal it was though it’s mangled
physiology suggests it may have once been a possum
by the look of it’s tail
It was turned almost completely inside out by now
and it’s spine was exposed
The internal organs cooked in the sun and where pressed
and thourally ground into the pavement
I stopped my nature apreciation while I could still
keep from throwing up
