battle scars
cut deep in
-to your spirit

inflicted
by others
or self-

centered
around
the sun…   your

solar plex-
us
just a memory

faded
denim blues
and blood-red

rover red rover
send someone
right o-

ver…  it’ll never
be over
until i say

simon says
simone says
until “I” say

-so
so-so
so sad

battle scars
cut deep in
-to my spirit

centered
around
   the sun…
