DEATH PUMP
(2/5/14)


they've
cut

they've
burned

they've
poisoned

they've
irradiated

now
they shake
their heads

the lub-dub
of a life giving
organ
has mutated
into
the tu-mor
rhythm
of disease

my heart
seems a cancer
machine
keeping me
alive
and killing me
at the same
time

wherever
my blood flows
so does the
destruction
that those
bad cells
bring

I look
at my
withering
flesh

feel
the beating
in my
chest

knowing
that the balance
doesn't swing
in my favor

"fine"

I say

"I'm doing
just fine"
