The Mortuary Fan

Spindling revolutions
blooms of unsettled dust fall on pale faces
shadows drawn in blank sockets.

though all is cold and still
the fan plays another revolution
blue light highlights the epitome of lost expression.

click whirr, click whirr
we are still, we are broken.
Let the lights go out
let the fan be still.
