Poet

I am from a poem

I have yet to speak;

words puzzled together

which will absolve me

of a last explanation,

one last precise detail

to bend my lived framework.

.

Useless without function,

my life is a broken gun

displayed beneath glass.

My past wears me

like skin stretched tight

across an empty drum.
