I am

Today
I took a razor blade
and cut a valley
at the nape of my left hand
and from there
from where a river flowed
I pulled veins
tendons white and blue
I stretched them taut
in the air
and plucked a song

I am tendons
veins like guitar strings
muscle
meat pulled back
I am hair
white nails
teeth

I am yours
with bare chest
dissected back to my heart
where a wood box sits
waiting
containing fragments
pieces
of what my life is
the comedy of what it was
and the promise
of what it will be
