my chest opens

my chest opens, I am
found, by the gleams
of a silver blade–it is known,
I exist in chunks, shards, pieces,
and leftover clockwork
I run on satires, failures
and heartache–my body
is a malfunctioning machine.

Yes, doctor, I was born
like this and
No, doctor, there is no cure
for being a broken thing
