tripwire triptych

I.

Yes, my neuroses sometimes
arrange themselves around me
like tripwire.

Other days I unravel them
like spools of yarn,
and trace them back to the
center of myself.

II.

If you listen closely

a Minoan princess

may slit the labyrinth open

from tip of head

to toe

III.

I slither on my belly,

shedding bones,

shedding skin,

stockpiling parts

with which to create

an exoskeleton
