“If you're losing your soul and you know it, then you've still got a soul left to lose”
― Charles Bukowski


ichor comes from her veins like
honey

when heaven bleeds; when it bleeds it
enters Earth through
the knife on her
skin

and flows through the land of milk and
honey

and it's also a bit like
petrichor,
when the sky bleeds, (not quite heaven) but
at least a heaven on this
earth

but the smell of it send my bones
rattling

because ironically the scent of wet
dirt
reminds me of a graveyard
for my body

but a heaven waiting for the precipi-
tation of my
soul
