FREE WRITING

16
eyes bleed golden/ lay with me and i’ll
catch you. in the mirror you see the faces of your ancestors
and blood bubbling over/ flood in a dixie cup
the pruning of your fingers and cherry juice sprayed onto your wrist
just one spotlight/ vines bursting from your belly. these
cramps are simply the dreams running thickly out of you.

    This was so pretty but I'm kinda ashamed to admit that I read the first line as E-yes and I was so confused XD
