Love Carnage

Love Carnage

written by: Carrie Magness Radna



New ribbon
now stripped of
its color, pinked
by shears, into
dark pinky threads,
from a hearty
red; dreading
its certain
after St. Valentines,
when the chocolate
strawberries are
gone. She wants
to leave behind
a souvenir
after the love
carnage; flecks
of once bloody
ribbon are now
mounted in
a scrapbook,
leaving a tail
or trail, like
bloody meat
scraps after
a night of
marathon sex
