trust

I wrap this package
in brilliantine and tears
ovum entrusted in your care
seahorse gentlemen gestate
gravid

burst premature
all the dying fetuses
fail to migrate home

secrets, trust
comfort, solemn vows
broken

where in this debris
is your name written?
owning this disaster
I have entrusted
which is my life?

by what right did you think
you could abuse
the internal workings
of my brilliantly lit interior?
lights out, no one home

How could you have failed
so spectacularly
and with so little thought?
and how could I have entrusted
this fragile thing
with someone so untrustworthy?

I trundle my guts in carts
I walk in spite of my stumps
I am happy now

Please, do not break my hands
they are all I have
my beautiful hands.
