Today I lay myself out;
jewelry on the wooden dresser
hair down my spine, my mid-back
and pieces of clothing fall like
perfumed, innocent raindrops;
I go to open my rib cage and
take out my heart;
my lungs and
every vein, one by one
so you can't take my breath away;
here is my mind
my every frightened thought
my hopes and dreams and
everything few and far between.
I lay myself out;
hopeful, but
dreadfully aware
that you could go
up into smoke
like the rabbit
from the
magic hat
