corpsefly

such an insignificant and frightening thing
with pearlescent eyes that shift and gleam
and the stench that sticks across its coat
from the feast of flesh, fester, and bloat.
it cannot harm you, not on its own,
but gorged and fat on flesh or bone
Yet when its buzzing fills the air
there is no greater or lesser thing to fear.
