Excised

I, a literary subplot
excised
from your feature film adaptation

flashlight walks the aisle for disappointed fans

unknown scratches
stealing
thunder with unkempt nails

it’s dark in here, can’t see my soul

choose a weapon
in this
galleria of broken glass bottles

don’t bring forked tongue to good ol’ fashioned knife fight

throwing stones
through
shattered two-way mirror

brick-walled, pursuing rumors with a periscope

a transcendental
eyesore
to your toothpick tower

picking up clean
when
it all
tumbles
d
o
w
