Catch Some Wide Eye

Boils Down To This

why is it that what runs through my blood
ain’t what runs through your blood
when i give you my blood
i give you my land
i give you my skin till my lungs run out, son
what does that mean?
my sweat, my hair clings to cheeks
i can’t never take it back, hun
flushed, colored, sunset stirred
ain’t what stirs in mortal hearts, son
now, come back. let’s see this again.

  1. Congratulations on your recent poetry awards in the 20th week rally!

  2. hmmm…is the use of son a familiar or familial term in this…each would give different meaning…

      exactly. i enjoy using words that may have multiple meanings so the reader is free to choose the one that resonates with them best.
