skin flap neighbour

Awoken by rumblings,
discordant noises outside the morning window –

eyes observe her there,
hunched over the carcass of a dead mammal –

blood covering her face
dripping molasses, sticking fur to her face like a beard –

her lips hang loose like punctured tyres,
her skin flap mouth hides missing molars.
