The Body

I have come to know much about pain. I was eager to share the knowledge.

I cut off all her fingertips
and pulverized her teeth.
I shred her hair to pieces
and then I coloured it with bleach.

I left half of her in Maryland
and half of her in Maine.
Her body’s logged with water,
so no identity remains.

A jogger’s sure to wander,
look upon her (or what’s left),
but they’ll never know what fun I had
or why she earned her death.
