Thin red lines rising over the horizon
Bubbling out of long volcanic craters

Scarlet drops that leak and drown
The distant molecules around me

Sharp sparks of lightning
Too late to pull the paper away

From the naked, exposed veins
That hurry between my fingers

Rusty liquid slips down my hand
And defines its shape and ability
