before disection, pith me please

if you are going to treat me
like a frog
in a high school biology class
and cut
along the stomach
and peel back the flesh
over the ribs
just so you can watch my heart
at least have the courtesy
to plunge that needle
through my skull
scramble my brain...
...won’t you

Hold me, squeeze me, pith me, peel me…
You can but hope…

But it’s more likely she’ll trephine your skull when she’s had done with your heart. Possibly pickling your brain in formaldehyde and replacing it with sawdust and onions… And they say what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger. Guess desire ain’t for the squeamish. Enjoyed this. Perversely.
