Scarred Simplicity – a poem

Let the knots of scar tissue itch

To remember when they were sliced,

Incised; cleaving open skin, sanguine

Ooze, flow, bubble, oxygen rich red

Sticky madness let out in harsh cuts.

*

Adrenaline, norepinephrine, insidious

High, brain cell bursting buzz clicking

As the blood flows in rivulets, pure

Superheated lava streaming smoothly

Over hard, brittle skin; skin of stone.
