The Nature of Things.

This violent episode begins innocently enough;

a game of tag between shades of blue,
which batter and bruise each other into
deep shades of purple.
What appear at first like surface injuries become
internal bleeding; capillaries burst –
blood red fireworks which bleed and bleed
until the crimson blood runs black,
a coagulated scab of a sky
which will be picked off come morning –
a vicious cycle of abuse
called sunset.
