phantom pain

memory is studded with darts of truth
if you could would you pull them out?
you know they stab and pierce.
it hurts to know reality.
they hold all the cards
and we watch the film roll
actors moving like puppets on drugs
if they gave you the strings what would you have them do?
what would the puppet world be like if you ran it?
you’d stab the puppets in the back and let them stab you too.
all for some morphine.
did you know morphine makes your pain disappear?
it also makes you throw up everything inside you and then throw up some more until you’re a crackly shell and you have nothing more to throw up and you turn into dust with the touch of a feather.
