Bloody Show

It is all about blood.
The going and coming of womanhood
Inside a person is greeted by blood.
You see blood when your kids
scrape while playing.
The thickness of blood
gives a creepy feeling.
Blood also bonds you to your roots.
Sometimes you cannot find them until
you see it coming out of
the wounds of your beloveds.
Then the roots get irrigated with blood.
It is all about blood.
