Blood Red – Poetry

Blood Red

By J. A. Weymouth

 

The murmur is red.

Drowning red.

The deep crimson of sour instinct –

Pursing those lips.

Pulsating blood in the current of life.

 

Your life is drowning.

You look at two faces and see one paler than the other.

Sweat

Heat

What is it you see?

Nothing but the basic, all naturel.

 

You pick up the cloth

it is red

made of silk

but you do not use it

because you are scared of the dirtied eye

scared to hide it behind the silk cloth.

 

Tolerant hands tremble

reaching out.

 

The blood is red.

All bodied blood.

 

There is nothing frightening behind skin.
