i, object

21/03/2016

you measure me with calipers and pin me with your gaze

i’m quantified as figures and dissected into trays

you’ll tell me what i really am once all the data’s in

strip me of delusions as you peel away my skin

objective facts are all that’s real, the truth we all can see

i feel that i’m the subject but i guess that’s only me
