Motel Surgery
Motel surgery

blood spattered dreams

razor sharp implements and a bathtub of ice



Keep walking backwards through life

so you can see what it is that you left behind



Liver transplants

kidneys on ice

best western bypass 50cc morphine dreams



Clamped aorta

forceps white sheets

scalpel suture

I have my souvenir

despondent dreams lurk in the back of my head

places I've been

things I've said

familiar faces left for dead

stealing pieces of someone else's life

destiny is hard to find with one good eye and both hands tied
