Tragedies Microscopic

blood is a living thing
(well, millions of living things)
a communal organism
flowing with iron and oxygen thoughts
and a few white corpuscles thrown in

blood is a living thing
until it leaves us
accidentally or by intentional hand
it dies a million deaths
yet remains a rusted community

Yeah that 16 year old kids once bright red blood should now be rust colored on the sidewalk where he was murdered. No one washes that stuff away anymore and it hasn't rained yet.

For all the "community" of blood, this piece gave (me) the impression of isolation. Very thought provoking.

Walking Man, strange how that remains and nothing else.

PixieDust, that's there. Yes. Strongly.
