self portrait

I have twenty flat nails,

And twenty seven sharp teeth,

A thousand miles of plumbing

‘Round a five-ten frame

And I can feel in my bones before it rains

A crack in the engine and no one to blame.

I have no feathers, I stand on two legs,

Built no states and earned no wage,

I want for everything but will not beg.

I have twenty flat nails

And twenty seven sharp teeth,

I’m the one who falls after all else fails
