it’s three in the morning. there’s ink on my fingers.
     on my palms. so i can’t see the lines that tell me

the future. my white sheets are stained. dark. i can
     see stars but not the moon. i’m scared. is this a poem?

i can’t tell. there’s ink and lines and no rhyme so it
     might be. maybe. i can’t really tell what a poem is

anymore. “are you okay?” my mother says. it hurts
     too much to breathe. maybe if i write in ink i won’t

bleed everywhere anymore. blood that no one sees.
     if a poem is written in blood and not ink (is it a poem?)
