Doc said: "Bri, your eye is diseased;
therefore it must ….soon come out."
I told her to do as she pleased.
"Ok, Doc, I won't cry or shout."
I played a surgeon for a fatal five minutes
securing the room for my own self operation
wiping away all the tears from my eyes
before I cut myself wide open
There are those that would use, 'words'
as one would use a surgeons scalpel.
Open Heart Surgery
It's probably time, time to check my self in,
my hair's getting long, so are the whiskers on my chin,
At the furthermost reach of the sea
where Atlantis sinks under the wake of the waves,
I have come to heal my life.
I knit together like a broken arm.
KEEP HEART OPEN NO SURGERY WILL EVER BE NEEDED
I like your open heart surgery
but in my case I keep my heart open
The early morning hours
Are cautiously weighed…
