my left arm

I ripped off my left arm
ten days ago now
as you can imagine
it hurt like hell

every day I miss it like
a hunger that never sleeps

without it I feel
crooked bent
a quivering freak
without my skin
fingers and nails
just a stump now
I don’t feel whole
no no no

but damn this left arm
it weighed me down
unfathomable
how heavy was its song
I no longer recognised
who I was with this droop

I had no choice
but to rip it off
straight off its joints
no agents for numbing
ouch

but boy everyday I miss it
like a hunger that never sleeps
it was me
I was it

my left arm
my twin

my satellite

my left arm
