all I ever wanted

was a brand new organ

something deep inside me

that I couldn’t explain

when I pull it out

and stick it on a slide

it just disappears

there it goes again —


I don’t mean to say

that anatomists

are all observationally numb (numb, numb, numb)

but in its absence

was an implied presence

interstitium (um, um, um)

interstitium (um, um, um)

interstitium (um, um, um)
