Haphazard Man

Written by: Simmy Lee

Red wires piercing through your skull shell
Like animal quills
Always pointing upwards
Challenging the sky

Your white cloud face
Casts shadows 
Over shoulder bones that balance you out
Don’t topple!

Scabs crawl the cord 
That stretches 
down and up and up and down
Your back

It’s hard to tell where you begin and end
You haphazard creature
Made of bits of this 
And bits of that

From soles to spikes
