there is a star exploding 
under my shoulder blade, 
it is bursting into existence, 
ripping apart my muscles,
ligaments, and bones, 
pushing them away from my body 
with violent force, uncreating 
my soul, uncreating my body,
uncreating the only universe
i have known 


Day 15 of National Poetry Writing Month: went off prompt for this one
