Covering Tracks

My good friend Louise has recorded a poem for me. I like the recording very much. Hope you do too.

Listen!

Covering Tracks

I make my mark
Deep wounds and burns
Fierce points of contact
A papertrail of cuts
Seconds of aggression
until the door slams shut
leaving heavy air

Slowly, quietly,
I run my fingertips back over the grazes
To erase
The traces
As if I had never been there
