Tear Me Apart

Tear me apart
between my elbow
and my fist
a blood vein wasteland
where do I

cells multiply
like a phoenix
like something more
is it hidden?
is it even

Tear me apart
piece by piece
bit by bit
brick by brick
limb from limb

Is there something
A character?
A devout christian
gripping a rosary
in prayer
a Buddhist
locking legs
Is there

Tear me apart
split the atoms
slice the cellular membranes
divide the nucleus
go further
than science intended

Can you find
something larger
than life?
larger than I
than you
larger than
the universe
even bigger
the chains
the space
the multiverse

Tear me apart
tear yourself
tear it all apart
'til it's all

But hopefully
there is something

Poem of the Day

poet William Wordsworth

Oft I had heard of Lucy Gray:
And, when I crossed the wild,
I chanced to see at break of day
The solitary child.

No mate, no comrade Lucy knew;
