rind

there is a
bitterness
in the rind
of the lemon
but with just
a coating of
coarse salt
that same
bitterness
is drawn out
leaving a
perfect vision
of summer.

my rind is
quite bitter
this evening
senseless
renal failure
leaves these
poisonous
thoughts
to gain mass
to become a
new entity
hellbent on
self-destruction

is poetry
my dialysis
a filter
for the
bitterness
that needs
drawn out
my salt packed
heartmurmur
wheezing out
feeble lines
pathetic
caricatures
of artistic
meritless
self-indulgence.
