stagnant blood

wakes me up

 

interrupts my sleep

to say

hey

my life has been

taken over

by little wads

of cotton on strings

 

in my bag, in my drawer

on my desk

in my bathroom

on the floor

 

i use a cup too

so it’s not

feeling like

i’m in a horror movie

i’ve directed myself

 

in the shower

under a supermoon

cursing the P.E teacher

who told me in health class

I’d never lose more than a teaspoon

 

of this stagnant blood

that wakes me up

watching water

dilute

red

to pink

to clear

 

drip drip
