She’s Come Undone

Unraveling

frayed threads at the edge of sleeve cuff

that I cannot stop worrying

 

I am coming undone

nuts and bolts release

themselves

with a ping

roll onto the floor

 

structural integrity dissolving

warning light flashing

on the wall

sirens wailing

meltdown

imminent

 

encase me in foam

in glass

reduce the

core temperature

evacuate the area

i am going nuclear
