Defiance Of Mortality

Mannequins queued against yellow walls,
Limbs connected to different joints,
Unfilled eye sockets,
Exposed indecently,
Heads decapitated,
Blank expressions on every plastic impersonation,

Forged smiles,
Fake temperaments,
Replicated beings,
An imitation of the authentic,

Poisoned life had been breathed into their plastic confines,
Numbers stamped across their chests,
Identical in every aspect,

Time is irrelevant,
In their waiting,
Their soul’s manifestation,
Is dawning.
