STILL & ALIVE

Snakes in my gut
Writhing
Rods in my legs
Stiffening
Rubber bands behind my eyes
Stretching
Sawdust in my head
Brain not working
Frog in my chest
Thumping
Rusted hinges in my joints
Weakening
Mouth full of gravel
Hurts to talk
Ears bleeding out
Silence around me
Body bending
And twisting
Then lying still
The hard surface beneath
So tired I could sleep here
A heap of broken bones before you
