This is me, with a hundred splinters.

It is with great difficulty that I look so closely into something.

That splinter that has calloused over so long ago. 

Look so closely that I have dug a hole clear through to the other side.
A hole so big, a vulture can fly through.

Look at it and figure out how it got there.
But the trick is to resist damaging further.
Leave it be, so you can live on….better with the splinter than with a gaping hole.
