razor thread
wound choke

and flinch
below the cinch

root infection
– swift extraction

grisly gap
now caves the mouth,

with poison
seeping out.

      • Well, I love your video reads. Interesting sounds too detached. Lol 🙂
        But the interesting part is what I mentioned. And not wanting to interfere with a reader interpretation is something that I think about too when people aks me what a poem means. I always hesitate.
