Sanguis (blood)

Hate-Fight_2017_12x12″_compressed charcoal on watercolor paper
Thick, salt, red/
Dark and flowing/
As anger shoots/
In powerful bursts/
Against bone and muscle/
A carnal attraction/
Seeing this/
A sharp, cold, spike/
Jammed right in/
Living nerves.
This is fear/
No way to jet/
No way to fly/
No way to REact/
To laugh?
But I do/
To embarrassment/
In violence/
In breaking/
The skin.
