Four minutes after death
    My encapsulated life
    Now acquires
    Its final metamorphosis.

    I begin
    To digest myself,
    Cells dissolving
    From the inside out,
    Tissues turning to liquid
    Then to swell gas.

    I am feast immovable
    To bacteria and flies:
    Skin rippling infestation,
    larvae hatching in my flesh,
    Now nutrient broth of
    Expired lies.

N.B.: It is a forensic fact that the human body begins its decomposition exactly 240 seconds after death.
