Unknown

it's really quite lovely 

to remain anonymous 

and mysterious.

 

Safer that way

to feel useless

yet important

until you want me

removed

 

Then how important i am

when surgery must be required

to remove my

nothingness

 

I am unclear 

I become inflamed

infected 

and can rupture

pain torment nausea vomiting profanity

how funny

  so much damage I am capable of

with my little 

existence

 

Wheezing, flushing

benign or cancerous

rarely tumorous 

remnant of evolution

pushing forward 

back

 

I am like a battery  

unnecessary yet flattering

you do not need me 

I only cause more harm

than good

at least that's all they see

after I am removed

inevitably

occasionally

 

Unknown

and mysterious

I once had a purpose

remember  

and talk about me

that's when i become famous
