National Poetry Month, Day #6: Hairline Fracture

Hairline Fracture

out of your mind
off the top of your head
uprooted and replanted
in the soiled sheets of my bed

coiled like serpent
coarse like a noose
sharp like barbed wire
or maybe it's mousse

uncovered just in time
a gasping hair's breadth
follicle assassin
my brush with death
