What If

by Marika

what if I'm a coward
what if I'm a fraud
what if I can't help it
what if I get caught
everyone's noticed the unpolished blunders
help
I want to yelp as I'm pulled asunder
and eaten up by swarming ants and
writhing maggots
they take their time devouring
a reminder
that I'm only cowering fodder
for the jaws that ever judder
