Mana: 
Line ‘em up;
shoot ‘em down

Fill all my aching
caverns until they
burst; fill them with
leaden ecstasy;
fill them until tears
stream down my face

It is hard to accept
an embrace when
my arms have grown
as stiff as metal

After years of abuse,
misuse, these hands
have learned to hide
in the dark places
beneath my elbows

So line ‘em up;
shoot ‘em down

pry these fingernails
loose; do it softly

if you bend my joints
too sharply, they will snap
and these arms will never
hold you again
