Good Tweezers

good tweezers are hard to find
ones that won't nick when you pull a splinter
eyeballs have very little feeling
and can bleed
blood, contrasted with the whites of the eyes
create a spectacular painting
if paintings could see,
what tales of indecision!

the muse in the corner
fragile and still
her curves and shapes
my eyes followed
anchored until released
trapped in the coffin of life
suffocating on our own greed
afraid of the world's opinions

shocked by the madness
shocked by the heartless
