#eighteen

we experimented
on a rat
torn in two
and parts removed
one by one
In a cage
of see-through glass
we took tooth
we took nail
and those blue eyes
we placed in the sun
on a window ledge
in a jar
staring out at flowers.
We experimented
but those eyes
were missing home,
or missing himself?
We experimented
and made pity
into glue
to bind him back
but the tired 
discarded heart
was bone dry.
