inspector

There’s another one, impartial,
who asked the right questions
like a fire marshall,
a toxic waste detective,
a home inspector
looking for defectives,

who put me in quarantine,
slapped on a moon suit
and wrapped me
in Owens-Corning fiberglass
covered my ass in asbestos
fireproofed me,
nuclear-free in lead,
containing my heat
