I LOOK AWAY

Spread eagled eagle pinned as such

Lion roars

It claws

Gnaws

It wounds

An angel’s touch

At least she seeks to

Seeks to heal

This lacerated mind

So calm and so indifferent

When ripped open

As now

Do you want the painkillers?

I look away

Spread eagled eagle pinned as such

Still
