Poetic surgery

A blade line, like a scalpel’s sighs
speaks in layers

A dying one’s whis­per
picking seams from the edges of a hushing pulse
the edge taut and ten­sile
not cold, but conver­sing
vowels pass from the deli­cate cut
as you swipe in fan­cy
a clean cheek-in tongue scar­ring stroke
relea­sing reso­nance
ope­ning cells of skin-sof­te­ned chords
epi­der­mis, der­mis and so forth
until you meet the flush of living words
