Bandaging The Head

What if the wrapping came undone,
Tape my head back togetherthe packing tape that holds it all together?

Just slipped a bit at first,
allowing more of it to weaken and slide.

Do you think I could pat it back down fast enough, hard enough, to hold it all together?

Or would it all come unraveled and everything spill out willy-nilly the good the bad the ugly the spoken the silent the dreamt the feared the hidden and unseen?

How would I ever get it all back in?
Could I even hope to do so?

Trust me on this one,
We’re gonna need more tape.
