Dissection Time, or a Scientist’s Love Song to a Donated Corpse

dissection time again!
pin yourself down on this
human-body-sized tray
so we can split your skin
down the middle
splay your ribcage
and finger your organs …
we want to see what makes you tick
we will electrocute your brain
to see what happens to it …
and we’ll laugh
if your face twitches!
