Red Eye

Like a ticking time bomb,

this red-eye,

of mine,

buried under fleshy earth,

to explode!

in fiery cascades,

again,

thrice come a riding,

thrice go a diving,

thrice return to R.E.D.

three letters I detest,

ruby rose Rojo,

in thine head,

pressure mounts,

capillaries exposed,

eye bloody eye,

I beseat you!

lay down your arms,

bacteria tipped,

vicious to the core,

you attack,

then retire to antihistamine baths,

appease with cool medicated drops,

drip,

drip,

drop,

as sanguine corrupts what was once ivory,

and the fog lightens,

in hot pigmented hue.
