Burned

Posted to Poetry




When in mid, furious
Passionate
Fight

She burned my arm
With the cherry
Lingering on her cigarettes far tip

The little scar
Evolving from one stage
To another

First
White
Dead skin

Then
Scabbed over
Scab pealed like a sticker

And a memory develops
Indented
I can just picture the skin when it is all over

Enclosing what was such a simple act
Of social defiance
I love her
