    There isn't any room for visitors,
    passers-by, or lovers
    my body does not seek
    to be in their comfort today

    This cast holds it's own
    fingerprints from being hung
    on rusted nails
    displayed on this inside
    of a closet
    to hide 'self' from any
    unwanted guests

    I often look in me
    trying to find sanity
    in the vanity of my frame
    and I must do this before
    leaving the confines of
    my own home

    While getting dressed I
    break into pieces just to
    ***** with your image
    waiting for you to
    collect yourself--
    pull it all back together
    so that you will remember
    in seven more years
    who made you...
    even if right now
    your life appears
    shattered
