Due For Maintenance – Promote Yourself

the robot

Grasp that wrench in your strong

And capable hands.

Study the

Crumpled and

Scattered blueprint.

Insert that screwdriver into the nails

Lining my spine.

Twist and twist and twist.

Place that wrench at the base of my neck.

Turn and turn and turn.

I am too young to move

And think

Like a machine.

Oil won’t silence these squeaky gears.

Hope will.
