Blood Runs (Dirt-Like)    (Continued)

Is the way he said it'd go:
Skin breaks, blood
Streams, blood
Stopped by paper pressed, blood
Sticking skin to gauze, blood
Drying slowly, red, red, red
Is everywhere, then scabs form and
Become scars, with time, he said,
The proof will fade. That
Is how he said it'd go: pain,
Heal, just that simple, healthy, real. Lies
Again, he
Lied again, I
Again, I think.
