Process is not aware of me  / it is moving undetected in my chest / I imagine the flaws in my arteries / asymmetric cells / the spleen is purifying  /  one hopes  / but it really isn’t necessary

 

Two weeks ago I found a scorpion hiding under the towels in our house

I crushed it with a tissue

placed it in the bathroom trash

 

It’s hard to think of context here  / As it all seems to overlap

my instinct tells me the scorpion does not belong  /  it does not take up much space

 

In the trash / An animal is an animal  / It’s hard to go beyond

with everything pushed into itself  / body into body

all of it wanting its own space
