So beat me with
your rope of blood –
I have seen before
your war –

scars on
skin – yet most
scars hide
inside your

So beat me with your
rope of blood
turn your head –
then – laugh. . .

another strike
eyes stare
never looking back –
another scar
as damage drains
a mind once more.

    Nancy, thank you for the deep dive into elements we all know–but fear.

    Excellent poem. “Rope of blood’…sticks in the mind like a black needle. Very arresting words!

    Thanks to both you Andres and you Danielle – how we see and hear things but seldom write them as plain as day. Regards to you both, Nancy
