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.

Typically, (and I'm ashamed to admit) when I'm reading through a lot of things I get bored very easily. But, then I saw this. I had never seen this on the site before, but I found it in the magazine and couldn't turn my eyes away.   It's... Striking.
