Body of Work
It's time for an experiment,
let's gather up the materials.
Latex scalpel goggles please
and don't forget the procedures.
Dissect me wide open
a cut above the rest.
Observe the anatomy -
perfect (flowing units of speech)
(to err is) human (count the possibilities)
(by veins of witty) poetry.
Detect the pulse of this heart -
beat beat beating
as an x-ray projecting the
tissues cell biology
study of life
jot it all down
through free verse and prose style.
So you can check the framework,
and note the inner substance
antibiotics - there's bound to be a reaction
Here's a final analysis.
When it's time for rigor mortis,
Tell me what you'll write as
the conclusion of my body of work.
