Metallic Blood Smell

(Written at an intersection, during a red phase)

Metallic Blood Smell

Sliding burn
a skateboard slam

same as the softness
firm sand against your back

burning metal filling air

The ocean tumble-speak

making everything feel like
waves

Sand rising and falling

Serum cresting and feeding itself
forward

The setting sun
is a blood blister
on the uneven horizon
