Spiderweb fissures spread thin probing fingers, Clawing at flawless veneer. Years later, cracks widen,
gaping, yawning,
smacking lips
eating at perfect veneer.
Pieces flake,
falling like crumbs
to the floor.
White smiling china doll,
Turns in the light.
Half a face
eaten and gone
black rot
raw stench
dead, crawls with maggots,
the white china face
stripped away.
