5 Star Cuisine - Poem by I AM THAT MOUSE

i bring you my heart
on a platter

pounds of beating matter
for you to splatter
on the floor

stitch up te emptiness
with some closure
i'll keep my compsure

no need for exposure
still they watch

they see you picking
up the pieces

while your hatred increases
and heart ceases
to exist

your hand may never
come clean
from washing the scene

did you like the cuisine
or was it bitter
