King Solomon’s Palace

King Solomon’s palace.
A curtain of pus has fallen.
Stale smell abounds.

A dance about destruction of the human body.
Skin attaching to skin, leprosy, and pain.
Cerebral syphilis, cramps, agony of death.

The space around the body hurts.
The scab falls.
Ornaments made of scabs.

Mirrors inside the palace slowly corrode.
Pus on the mirrors, and the pus is actually the king leprosy.
A sick whale swims through a canal of pus.
