lipstick

twisting around to reach you
suddenly feeling alone
in cool, accusing winds
from the lake
looking behind me and beside me
reading and re-reading your mail
with the single intent
of smearing my lipstick
over your body
until they drive you to the ER
certain that you are bleeding
and you are–you know
bleeding (me)
you are bleeding me
