BLOODY VALENTINE
(2/15/14)


the winter
days
are dry

my nose
is dry

I blow it

it bleeds

I look
down
into the Kleenex
and see more
red
than anything
else

this
is good
for me

a reminder
of my
mortality

I'm just
a big bag
full
of faulty
plumbing

faulty wiring

so close
to collapse

so close
to death

I wad
the disgusting
result
and throw it
into the trash

I wonder
what the next
person
will think
when they
view
the remains

they will
probably not
strike
such a philosophic
pose
