Part of Me Now: July 24, 2015

When I watch,

the flailing tails,

the claws confined

by bands of rubber,

and then see them,

become quiet,

and finally still,

do I want to eat them?

 

When they fall,

whole body into

scalding water,

not the cool sea water,

they were expecting,

can I honestly,

convince myself,

beyond a shadow of a doubt,

that the pain they felt,

as they died,

will not be part 

of me

now?
