HEMMORAGE

Can you wait a minute?
Let me suture my heart
so words dont bleed out
I dont want to drip
all over your shoes
when you didnt cause
the hemmoraging
Can you wait a minute?
Let me dry my eyes
and fix my lipstick
my cheeks flushed
with happiness
when you didn’t cause
the weeping
Can you just wait
one minute more?
