Bruises

written by: glenda

@higgins_glenda

 

Shipwrecks of filtered light
I'm not in love
Am I?

Spume flying
Against our boots
Blowing on cold hands

Haven't seen you
In a long while
Holding shaking breath

With bruises
Time flying
Against our souls

Poetry again?
Old friend
Escaping waste baskets

A past not perfect
Thrown against the wall
Not sticking

Taking a licking
Like words between teeth
Needing cleaning
