Ekphrastic 24/Death Note

The apple-crazed.

Name: Ryuk
Face: made of bone and a lively rigor mortis
Death: he dies in December for his apple-blossom lover


Name: Yagami
Face: you pretty, pretty boy
Death: crushed beneath the weight of his own head


Name: L
Face: on it you’ll find a crumb of strawberry cake and tea stains under his eyes
Death: angel

Second to last ekphrastic poem.  Next one, the twenty fifth, will be a long one.  Inspired by what?   No idea.  Suggestions welcome.
