"My Paintbrush"

My paintbrush is my scalpel that I use to cut myself
Open and lay it all out there

Naked and bare for the whole to look on
I don’t know why I need to do this

Everything anyone would ever want
To know about me (if anyone even cared)

Is there squeezed out in the paint and canvas raw
The rest is for me alone.
