autobiography of a knife

a sure contour
steel

solid

sharp
makes its mark


red

horizon

follows horizon

and weeps


a seam
split

teeth in flesh


I am a thing
you choose

to use

a fine gradient


tucked in hip
crest
against skin

potential


a body apart
a shining example

cleave and kill

or

spiritual surgery

choose carefully.
