 i gather my sticks. i purchase my stones. eager to assemble the gallows. 

i measure the rope. i count the coils. determined to fashion a perfect noose. 

though i still bleed i require no bandages. 

there's the wink of truth as it erupts from behind stubborn lies. 

there's a burst of freedom as at last i am certain. 

flesh is merely a conduit. 

the power was always mine.
