Empty

I reach down
Open my chest
Place my hand inside
Empty

I reach up
Unzip my head
Place my hand inside
Ashes

I reach down again
Slide open my stomach
Butterflies wing out
Shimmering

I reach up once more
Grasp at my mouth
Peel it away
Silent

I lie down
Close my eyes
They disappear
I remain still
Empty
