Red

image

I cut
I slice
In a blur
I cry
Life
With this knife
Enters
Me
As I bleed
And relive
The Passion of the Christ
In a tiny, tiny glass
A tempest
In E minor
Colours
Which have never been
So real
Because smoke
Charcoal
Dusky Red
And pain
Is allย I know

  1. “A tempest in e minor”. Of course the first thing that *I* had read was ‘Temptress in E minor’, which would be a magnificent title for that beautiful photo. Your words transform the temptress to the poetess, that one can only admire the way beauty is extracted from pain with your prose. โค
