i can exhume the entire carcass
from it's flimsy outer shell;
tail and all. And if you know anything
you know the tail is the hardest part.

it requires skill -
a delicate concentration.

and after it all,
the beheading, the deveining,
the amputating of each limb,
the poor creature sits on my palm

as gray and dead as a dead man floating.
