skin

 

i have to let go of old skins

i keep on holding on to them

saving them

trying them back on to see if the flaps tighten again

and it’s a waste.

ive moved past and grown to know better.

i know better than to mask fresh wounds with dirtied wraps

because i know that infection is death

moving

in spirals down

and bleeds out

onto street corners

and i can’t keep finding myself on corners in filfth

because one day won’t be able to be just infected

and brought back to health.

fresh wounds may hurt, but they will also, almost always heal.
