Incise!
do not numb the pain
let it shoot up the spine
like lightning
stunning the senses
out of stupor.  

Dissect!
separate the skin
from the layers beneath
rip the muscles apart
pierce the membrane
lay it bare.  

Excise!
tie off the offending parts
leave a wide margin
of healthy tissue
spare not any necrotic parts
be radical.  

Anastomose!
restore functionality
let there be a union of live cells
working together in unison
sustaining life.  

Suture!
close the jagged edges
weave the thread
under the cuticle
limit the scar and the stares
let the healing begin.

"For the word of God is quick and powerful
  sharper than any two edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and
is a discerner of the thoughts and intent of the heart" (Hebrews 4:12, KJV)

Powerful writing!

I loved this entry and went along similar lines myself, as the same verse in Hebrews came to mind when I saw the topic. We require the scalpel of the Great Physician. Well written, great use of words.

I think this is a brilliant bit of poetry. I think the allegory and visualization of a real surgery paired perfectly with the Bible verse. I think you really have an out of the box idea here and I enjoyed it.
