Branded And Brandish


A zit on your cheek
A bite mark beside your throat
A new dye in your hair
A scar you cover
A tattoo you expose
A hand over your face
A hand over your chest
A pain in your hands
A name printed upon your skin
A blade you wield openly
A rough morning headache
A burn never healed
A hot metal to your stomach
A knot of guts
A wound that stays open
A tear squirming down
A new sound from out your lips
A finger tapping your head
A scab you keep picking
A list without an end.
