Asylum Fragments

My facial muscles are secured with twine
But only I know which ones to pull
because the face is mine.
– – –
I started off with my toes
ate them unsalted for a day.
Then broke a molar on a sudden pedal bone.
Today i polished off a knuckle.
But tell me
Do I qualify as a cannibal?
– – –
He will visit me no more
He now observes me from outside the door.
The last time he visited
he left screaming, wiping away blood and saliva.

It is really safer to keep him out.
He is getting more unpredictable by the day.
