empathic emergency


a fifty one fifty

kind of love

pioneering the art form

of bloodletting

emotional sepsis personified

she’s an overdose

disguised as a memory

self-pity toxicity

and you are

cardiopulmonary resuscitation

spoken in prophetic verses

shrouded by the sirens

of her ambulance chasing

scientifically speaking

rigor mortis has set in

stiff limbs resistant

the only life

now worth saving

is your own

the doctors can’t stitch

a wound that wide

vertical vanity

do you think

hemophilia is heroic?

this is an

empathic emergency
