April 12

Oil

When I was young, someone told me blood
was blue within your body and only turned red
when it hit the air. You could look at the blue veins
on the backs of your hands if you wanted proof.
Now I know better, of course, having learned
that all blood is black and every circle is a hole
and that if a thing flows beneath the ground
you should never let it out.
