Contagious

Posted to Poetry




A little girl sat
crying on the ground,
bitten by a dog,
so stains of blood
coloured the whitish dress

Whoever passed her
averted their eyes
hoping a nastier miracle
would descend from the skies

I think she still
leans against her wall,
clothed in love-like red
while her skin turned white
like a dress
