Butterflied

The body
injected with plastic
cracked open and
vaguely obscene
organs arranged
some of them even
butterflied

This is the kidney
you need just one
but you have two

It occurs to me that
if you take slices
close enough everything
resembles everything else

But if you take a slice
here and a slice there
everything is different
and you might ask

How can these things
fit together?

Which is an honest question
and the honest answer is
there’s a lot of same old same old
until everything has changed
and you just didn’t notice it
because you think about it
too much you think about it
all the time you think about it
and it makes you think about it
deeply think about it
madly think about it
