hey baby, can you bleed like me ? ……..

 

i have a white screen

 

a flashing cursor

 

and

 

no words.

 

 

my mind is blank

 

bar

 

thoughts of a red intervention.

 

 

i have 16 chalky aspirin

 

and

 

a tall, clear glass of water.

 

 

i intend to refresh my weary head

 

with

 

sprays & pulses of dark,dark blood.

 

 

i must bathe my fears

 

in

 

a warm crimson tide.

 

 

when my troubles are let

 

i shall swallow a pretty blue pill

 

and

 

drift into untroubled sleep.

    As always I want you to be safe.
    And to keep writing.
