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.
