Untamed Ego

my arm half way severed
dripping, gushing, rushing
dangling, tangled scarlet bits
flood the market floor
drawn in like never before
faces followed by shock by questions
"what happened?"

exposition to the inquisition with
minor resistance
yearning for assistance
it is apart of me now
i'll never evade my reflection
like latch key kid tried to
patch it up, but
my limb detached from the one
that snatched me up
trap that was set
shining gold fruit, don't fret
just follow, allow yourself to be
swallowed now and can later wallow
in pools of milk and blood, no honey

inch by inch the fangs that
sank and pinched like nails on palm
i know worse has been done
but it's easier said than done
i know worse has been done

but my goddamn motherfucking
arm is gone and i have a
goddamned motherfucking right to
be insatiably fucking infuriated!

i try to keep my chin high and
not lose love for the cloudy days
but it's easier said than done
still inspired to sleep with gun
and when meeting prospective mates
to just assume i should run

but when i breath, the air is still clean
and numerous sounds to find meaning
men and women with egos tamed
that can enjoy a meal at home
on a friday evening
steaming after food tea, not seething
with daily grotesque gossip
just keeping the good sounds abundant
just looking out for each other
just getting through this together
