Truth

...Hurts
but not like burning yourself
or jamming you finger in the door
or getting a black ey
or poison ivy, bee-sting,
...falling out of a two story window...

No,
Its the joyful pain cutters find out of cutting,
Its breaking you leg

and having everyone sign your cast

and make you cookies

and open the door for you
Its gashing oopen you nuckle

then having fun

bending your finger

in a sychotic slappy-happy daze

to watch blood spray out

as if your finger is a squirtgun

That is truth...

it hurts...


but feels oh so good.
