RED

RED

A Poem by Sarah Emily
"

Explains itself.

"
A chapped blush flusters
the surface of her thighs,
quite like the seeping
nose bleed, furiously blotted
with the back of dirt-streaked
hoodie sleeves, or
the blisters on the palms of my
father's hands if he had
been a hard-working man
rather than an alcoholic.
