Spread Thin

Pick ax
pick me apart
personal vendetta

we suffer
from same sickness
but take
different medicine

so tell me what my sin is

what is the fault
line in my heart
splitting we in two

paper feelings
crumpled up and burning
in fire pit of stomach

so tell me, set me free

pick me apart with
jigsaw fingernails
puzzle-piece entrails

make me whole
stretch me out and see
what kind of picture I can paint

just how thin I can be spread
