Seeing Red

  My eyes are peeled for red. Everywhere I go I scan the crowds, seeing through people’s defences, clothing, and general masks To the broken bleeding bits of them. I know who is broken, How they are broken, And to what extent they are broken. But tonight, I looked down at my own torso and…

Rib-Caged Hearts

My heart beats wildly, Hiccupping and galavanting all over the place As if trying to catch up with a new born foal. It’s spindly little branches can’t support it as it caves in here and there, Yet it takes off after every leaf and blade of grass Waving at it in the wind, Completely unaware…
