hook

a range, a breadth of opportunity

within one fleshy interior

presented, protected by bone, skin and hair

if you monitor someoneĀ at the right frequency

would a soul be hiding there

 

do you leave the hook in

the barb holding you together

simultaneously

causing great pain but

stopping you from bleeding to death

 

there comes a time for its removal

the hook sliced in without approval

this excuse, this crutch, this dull, old story

an old man once said

its best to let your guts fall out

and stitch yourself up

than just persist in pain

so thats what ill do

keep smiling, keep laughing, keep busy
