Found Poetry 576


covered in surgeons, I look down
hooks in me, red as a flare
machines purr as if to keep a beat
in what seems like an unending tug of war
the hurricane of work finally passes over
my body feels like a corkscrew
a crooked manshape wearing a mask
cramped in my own bones
but lifted to a second chance
