The Ending

No ending of the story.
The loose thread hangs.
Journey again starts at the termination.
The smell is something of an enigma.

I am again dissecting the body of a stale corpse.
Fever is rising with jokes.
Thin sheet covers the ugly face with blisters.

A disconcerned person burns the phosphorus.
Darkness creates the ghosts of history,
two thousand years of knowledge.

Still the niceties of culture are to be observed
and fireworks started to celebrate the end of an era.
