The Last Part

An atrocity of emotion written
in smears upon backs in
vertical columns
divided by spine
unspined by design

Hopeless and dry,
this wracking jag
in an uncontrolled heap of
swiftly softening regret

sick with myself
& begging reason

to deliver me
& sever me
like human shit
floating in dog's blood
deserves deliverance.

[Someone's crushed dog
left its heart amid ribs divided
& crossed to foretell
A senseless grasping
and its result]
