Little Wounds

The knives have cut deeper than this

Who are we kidding?

So have the paper cuts

The paper clips through the skin

Little wounds

Given way to cheap lessons

Through scabs and scars

Lifted at the corners


Like they told us not to

Naughty child

Misbehaved and precious

That pool in your palm

Is worth spit and humor

Clean it off


It’s gross
