The Healing Makeover

Detach your limbs of sorrow

and remove the poison vessel

from your throat. 

Wipe away the vexation 

from your lips, flush out 

the melancholia from 

your mind, keep the tap 

from your eyes running.

Steadily pluck each worn out nail,

toss them into the sink,

wash and scrub the scum of 

regret off your skin.

Shave all the strands of decay

from your scalp, soak 

your feet in lukewarm water,

breathe slowly through your pores.

Make sure your heart remains

where it should be, keep your 

veins intact, let your blood do

the flowing.

Then, embrace 
yourself for 

a good bout of living.
