Pierced By The Clumsiness Of Your Words

you pierce me

with words that

i wish could

cut like surgical

steel but they

do not

they are clumsy

words

cutting flesh

with their

dull, rusty blades

etching their

way into my

membranes like a

drunken

tattooist.

flailing about

in an attempt

to only destroy

my skin against

the imposing

edge of your

careless words –

with

no regard for the

art involved

in murder.
