looking into Frankenstein

these disturbing images
stitched in blood so carefully
mark the spot the reaper touched
as he briefly passed by me

are they as the creature saw
when he first returned to life
scarred yet rescued by the blade
of that famous doctor’s knife?

startled and uncomfortable
with these sights to him unknown
but relieved to have regained
present form of flesh and bone

curious, this lesson learned
as the body falls diseased
life seems more a gift possessed
than experience perceived
