This horrible side of me
borne of traumas ancient
and mostly self-imposed
is not the side I ever intended
to be in the documentary

A brand so well conceived
and performed that the
bit was bought long ago
when it was off off Broadway
featuring unknowns for scale

Old like the poetic trope
about life being some sort
of maze that one must
navigate in order to survive
this burning garbage barge

As with many amputees
there remains a keen
sensation of the missing
pieces feeling exactly as
they always should
