Anatomy of the burrows

A mosquito lies
dead inside a book
I religiously once read

Three rows of letters
blotted
out in the middle

The red halo
enshrines the body
forgotten

Now on a shelf
it lies
the blood smells yellow

Around the spot open
a trail of burrows
frequented by pilgrims

I dissect
the anatomy of the burrows
How thorough the silverfish were!
