Helen Vitoria- Where are you?

I am preserved in a mason jar of salt with a blue black scorpion.

I am fighting for my life but he is winning.

I am immobilized by his predatory sets of eyes.

I am book lungs and a movable claw.

I am segmented by thirteen reasons to leave or stay.

I am letting him think he is winning.
