CRANIAL ESCAPE
(3/31/14)


easily
excising
the top portion
of the head
to access
the tender meat
beneath
must seem such
a smooth operation
when using
those handy little
electric rotary
saws

try that
from the inside
Dr. Fuckface

I've spent
countless years
chipping away
at bone

ripping
at scalp

to get
where I am
today

pushing
aside
this useless
thinking organ

extending
strained fingers
and knuckles
to grasp
the jagged
edges of skull

pulling my way
out of this
diminishing body

pulling
my way
to freedom

hoping
for an alternative
incarnation
of me
