CT scan

Twenty years later the memories weren’t gone
She remembered the looks on their faces
She remembered what they said
She remembered thinking ‘I won’
Feeling like a looser anyhow

Is modern technology powerful enough
to show the effects of words on my body?

Can you see them eat their way
from cell to cell
excrementing
what they destroy
leaving a waste land
of hurt DNA?

Does it show how words
stretch cells to their limits
breaking uneven points
leaving cellular scar tissue for no one to see?
