a work crew enters

from darkness in my mind

steel boots traverse my soul

as through my body they do wind


they're waiting on my ribs

their tools are at the ready

and then a whistle blows

soon the pain it will be steady


who could have sent them here

such a small and fragile place

don't tell me it was me 

who allowed them in this space


i want to contradict

as their drills begin to start

they just warn that it will hurt

when they deconstruct my heart
