New Pilgrim poem

Garra rufa fish in a glass tub 
feed toothless on my bare feet.
They nibble bits of dead skin
from ankles, toes, heels, soles. 
I fear an evil one, gone piranha bad, 
will leap clear of water, aim 
for the chest. Like you, it will rip me
open, devour arteries, veins, 
ventricles. All heart gone,
I will be left with a stent.
