Life gets more confusing at this point

I throw a fistful of leeches at the wound,
and this is when you remind me
that we’re beyond leeches.
Specifically, we are at the point
where we need to get our priorities right.
When we stroll through our daily routine,
we realize that all we’ve ever done
is pretend to be human.
We’ve cut the superfluous limbs
and cauterized them to limit the bleeding.
We’ve repeated the behaviors
of our neighbors, our celebrities,
 those we call our friends—
our family.
You tell me I’ve lost the ability to copy and paste
the husks of others onto my person.
I’ve never been more scared in my life—
 actually, I’ve never been scared until now.
