Hello, I'm an illusion

I am just pieces of skin
patched together like a worn pair of jeans
stretched over my dry bones,
And covered in hot glue.
I have two googley eyes
from those cheesy cards at the supermarket
shoved into my puppet skull
and forced to dance.
I grit bleach stained porcelain teeth,
that taste like the piss I say
though they are white-
just like a public urinal.

I’ve come to realize almost absolutely nothing,
though my mind is always attempting
to unravel life
like its some sort of a
storybook fucking riddle,
but its not
and never was or will be.
Yet here I lay fabricated
in some sort of grotesque night terror
trying to be the portrayal
of something nobody has ever seen.

Hello, I'm an illusion
