red

on my hand the knife paints
a red line. red string of fate
red, red, where do all seas
flow to red when the sky is red
sky sailor’s delight dawn rising
red even as red the seas flow
when red like my palms red-pink
flow bloodred my heart red burning
red who came up with that color red
a flower grows from the crack red on
my hand red death red bloom
where does the red go when
red the red wail fish-eye siren-song
red all red who wants to drown me
in red when red the sky bloodens
and wild the birds winging red
red death
red cry of death
on my hand the knife paints
a red line
