Scarification (never coming back)

   There it was
right there
  everything you ever needed
to know
   Put a gun to it’s head
and shoot it

   Been fed up 
for as long
  as I
could remember
   only got
one thing
   I’m lookin’ forward to
seeing things again
   I’m seeing
things again
   palms pressed
a fork in the road
   and a fire pit blacked
tattoo the section
   beneath the cortex
dilate the cavity
  peerless and clocklike
you stood there
   like a tombstone 
like a vulture
   or a sundial
every day we woke
   to the burial again

Give us just this one
   vision
      this one thing
         no one else can see
