red pen

Standing against a wall
Will stiffen your back
Straighten your thoughts
Pressing upon your neck
Will distract your fears
Slow the blood to a trickle
Reaching below the heart
Reveals your lover's spine
You never gave it back
Did you?
Starting with a red pen
Among fools
Usually leads back to the corner
Of the room
One stool... one cap... and time.
