FIXER, SWITCHER, MAKER
By Ariel Fleishhacker
Fixer
Switcher
Maker

I am Fixer and I mend what is

 

broken.

 

Walking shadows with faces that frown, white and thin that breath like snakes.

I Fix it.

Red and hot from the space in their body and they scream. I Fix it.

I put my hands on the bad and make it better.

But sometimes the bad is more than the good.

They go to a place where they look but do not see.

And that I cannot Fix.

When the snake stops hissing and the beating stops

 

beating.

 

I am Fixer. But I cannot Fix

 

This.

I am Maker

 

I am Maker

 

and I wake the place you call dead

I am Switcher and I put an alive in an empty.

 

a gray face a warm face

a rainbow body a cold body

a body is a body is a body is now

a

new body

here is your new body.

 

two eyes open and another two close

that heart wakes

but

this

heart

sleeps

 

a body is a body is a body is

 

just a switch.
