St. Luke (patron of artists, physicians, & surgeons)

take the appendix and

paint it with all the reds

of those high notes,

the blues behind

your eyes.

lean into it. draw a circle

and test the curves of

the lungs.

stretch them wide

open, find the trees

at their centers.

take a goldfish

and let it swim

in your chest.

see the light

beneath your ribs.
