Guts

she’s waiting there
in a structure of bones
a network of tendons
a clockwork of joints
and organs

straining muscles
piercing eyes
each a fibrous mechanism
interconnected
a collection
of beautiful things

hidden components
of a grander whole
wrapped in the skin
of the one I love
dismantle me
and then rebuild

two halves
is what we are
