U: unearthed #NaPoWriMo

When my soul needs healing

I come to you

Cutting through flesh and tissue

With an expert scalpel

Setting the maggots free

Tearing the skin

Unearthing (in)human remains

A bit of nail, some blood

Some sinew.

And when it’s done

I draw the curtain

Veil the wounds with the usual warts

And hide

In full view.
