Even out of the air, though, there is still air down there.

There isn’t much, I’d imagine, not enough to breath, but enough to speed along the process of decomposition.

Air and water, too – such key ingredients to maintaining a life – seep into a grave and magnify a death, taking a body further and farther away from its form.

But even then, water and air are encouraging life – worms and maggots and beetles and bugs thriving on the water and air in the body, in the ground, eating, drinking, breathing their way through a death – with their life.
