The Body Surfers

The young Costa Rican could no longer feel, as he eyed his own lifeless corpse. He was as out of body as anyone can get. Gazing from another realm, he noticed bluish tint over his own pasty brown flesh. Though his spirit lived on; he realized his remains were dead.

His body was on its side in a fetal position and, from afar, he studied the wicked wound on the back of his own neck. His coagulating blood was slowing like a freezing reptile’s. He saw that his head was nearly severed, and sensed his arteries and veins clogging in the frigid air. It wasn’t a discreet thought, just part of his soul that he ought to be angry. But he was above that now.
