Number 13

all stumpy I awoke

there was no pain

I had no hands

I had no feet

the sutures had healed over

the skin was smooth and beige

this was to show me

the real value

of all my life’s complaints

first world problems, hey?

I swelled inside

fear bursting through my ears and eyes

I went to cry out

it is learned!  Have mercy!

but there was too much space in my mouth

I had not a tongue

the sutures had healed over

and the skin was smooth and pink.
