The gift.


You must of felt my scratch in the hollows of your heart.

For all that I have tried to reach and never touched, never scarred.

Your eyes still burned.

Your skin

Soul distended.
Inside out.


For once

time has revealed

offered you…


An awareness

a rude awakening…

a crystal clear vision of
the dirt
Under your finger nails.


all you needed
was a clipper.

Note to self:

You’re welcome.
