#2,645 Exsanguination

Slow pumping out of bilge
will encourage less desire?
A drain of essence – weigh
less? That offer of wrist oft
taken [turn bared up] – cut
other limbs – Socrates bled
[but did not die as quick as
required so was carried off
to suffocate] – Pints poured
& we will succumb [give up
our rich blood lines] – We’ll
breathe no more above red
tide marks of heft of heart –
I fall in love easily is written
scar-risen on my chest – rip
of nails have marked me as
a fool – dispose of this April
too [bled now & left to fail]
