body stories (ii).

Image credit.

We live in a world of excess limbs,
of arms that flail madly for your attention.
These limbs become a crutch
becomes a person
becomes a separate entity and you
can’t help yourself. 

But you realize that amputations are there
to save your life. 
And so choose to bleed. And live
in a world of excess limbs. Because life is more
than having another piece
of flesh to hold onto.
