I've got this thing,
right under my skin.
That itch of infection
swelling and blooming
in that bruise of pink
and opening scar.

So there you have it
that little piece of wood
buried deep within
affecting me,
effecting me.

I might have to dissect
retrieve the thread within
the weave of dream
buried deep beneath my skin.

I might have to act.
Must I pull the infectious
from deep below the surface
before it descends much lower
and affects my purpose.


The End
