A Poem by Bill O. Writes

Like the wreck that turns heads
This all lacks structure
I was a mistake
I used to create sculptures 
from the scrap metal of my accidents
But the rust has eaten away at the best of it all
Inside out
Hollow fills
Be not deceived
The presence of nothingness
Is far more a burden
than my neck can bear

Every time I die
on impact
but then resurrected
just to command a new vessel to the same fate
