On the Table Saw

Vision Statement

Everyone with tentacles stuffed in their mouths.
Those with empty mouths became monsters
They broke my hunched backbone
Kneaded into the shape of a dog
I lay prostrate on the ground and moaned
Steel spikes pierced my chest, my ribs, and my heart was shackled with a shackle engraved with waste
I struggle and twist
Concrete drowns my ears and eyes
Confining my nose and breath
They pick me up
Stroking my neck, my back, my belly
Removing the shackles called waste
I kissed their toes and then I was really a loser
