A letter. Blood rushes to my head.




Crimson skies
As red as blood
Smells like rust
_____

The letter sits
on the window sill, untouched
Harbinger of bad blood
______

with only one look
Blood rushes to my head -
Summer is over
________



An experiment in storytelling

    'Harbinger of bad blood' that's awful. It creates that impression that its contents are anticipated and more or less known. Mysteriously beautiful.
