give and take for granted

my head is swimming as the world seems to be filled with need

my teeth are shards of glass jammed into bleeding gums, my hands replaced with talons, my heart a wicker basket filled with coals

what more can you take, what more can i give, just ask and it is yours

just another case of right crime wrong victim, fictional alibis and factual inaccuracies, the jelly fish spine of invertebrate insecurities given form

i am just another mess for you to clean up, a corpse in the rosebush out back

an action figure with a melted torso, unable to live up to beauty expectations, insincerity the only flattery allowed in a world that only takes for granted
