He grazed my arm

then sawed it off.

He whispered into my ears

then bit it off.

He nudged my elbow,

then he cut a hole.

My eyes reflected the light

he was.

But he gorged them out

For Adam’s ale – perhaps

a tinge of salt and vinegar

Oh boy,

was it bitter.

He bought me shoes

but took the laces

left me in all unknown places.

He gave me a watch

without a dial –

showing me time,

was a trying trial.
