I want to know what makes you tick,
I want to know how you create the twisted thoughts
that you have.
Is it your heart? You brain? Your tongue?
Are those organs of yours disobedient little animals running around in
like the common cold or the flu, are they the reason
that you think and say the things that you do?
I’d like to know for sure but I’m pretty sure if I explored this
question with the attention to detail it deserves
I’d probably get life, the chair, the noose or would it be the needle?
Still. I’d like to know what makes you tick and what runs around
in your head, non-stop in the middle of the night.
Do those things have claws, teeth, marrow in their bones?
Do they ever stop racing, sleeping and dreaming
in that empty dark shell that is your skull
will they ever stop feasting on your cold unbeating heart?
