Sanguine

She simplifies madness

She drags on for

miles and miles 

about the same 

old roads behind 

her house.

 

Pebbles can smash

thin windows, if

you drive too fast. 

 

She lost a tooth 

untying a noose, 

she was too small

and hit the ground

 

Loose change for

sweets to dull the 

pain; the remains 

of a little girl.
