open (wound)

writing here
is like writing in an open
volcano crater

the night was easy, now
the morning
much like a razor

held gently (my eyes on Mars)
it won’t cut me
if I don’t squeeze too hard

still I’m bleeding (words)
for days
and this can’t be covered
with your Band-aid

sorry it got on your shoes
are they last year’s Prada
bought yesterday?

tell me what you see
(after short-sheeting me)
in the folds of the bed

through your filters
I only see red

  1. Yes
    Bleeding is so inconvenient, isn’t it.
    Spoils everyone’s day

    But there’s something cleansing about it too and inexorable.
    Let the blood run
    Another fantastic write


Give me your two cents
