“A Pithy Estate”

The body is a liar.

The body is a prison.

It has the early on-set signs of paranoia,

with cautious skin and structured organs.

It holds the heart hostage,

ribs casting shadows over each other.

Blood is a moat,

keeping life inside the throat.

One cut and you will see,

just how fragile life can be.
