Underneath


to dismantle my body 
inch by inch
peel off my skin
unline each muscle 
break every bone.

imbibe each layer of my being.
with a scalpel  
slice each nerve
splice into each a vestige of you
till all of me is rife
with a thronging
of you,
of your chimes crying out.

and leave it there. 
this heap of flesh 
stay in the earth
smashed into a pulp 
reduced to a red and purple ooze 

and bones of me 
flakes turn into dust 
and shimmer in the haze
lay ground beneath your feet.
