At Three Years


The healing is much slower
than I thought it would be,
the risk of infection great.
Mutant strands
lie in wait.

Ashes everywhere
cause complications,
and further infect.

Keeping the wounds clean is hard.
Thoughts are like viruses,
triggers like staph.

Blow on the ashes
and see.

Blow on the ashes,
and you’ll see...
