"Plasticized Cadaver, Unidentified" by Hunter Madsen

"Plasticized Cadaver, Unidentified"


But it's not just the cadaver,/ It's not just that frightful person who's no one,/ That abysmal variation on the usual body,/ That stranger who appears in the absence of the man we knew,/ That gaping chasm between our seeing and our understanding -/ It's not just the cadaver that fills the soul with dread/ And plants a silence in the bottom of the heart. 
     - Alvaro de Campos (ne Fernando Pessoa), "But It's Not Just the Cadaver"
