BLOOD ON PORCELAIN
(11/14/16)

we are
a fragile
race

but cuts

abrasions

bruises

upon a canvas
of skin
seem not
to overly
concern us

they are
injuries
in context

however
spilling a bit
of ourselves
upon a contrasting
field of definition
can be quite
disconcerting

sometimes
we have to view
our vulnerabilities
at a distance

a sanginary
cinema
of reality

in order
to truly realize
a bit a fear
for our
lives

although once
the reels
have run

once
the surface
is cleaned

we return
to the shining
white
of immortality
