Bleeding again, this body hides
its scars from the inside, a
natural cauterization to each
vein, each artery. What dwells
in the eyes, windows in a house
where immovable chairs collect
dust, creaking, dried wood
and nails betrays proof of life.
They recently said "there's life
on Mars". Carbon monoxide, mountains
and valleys, the face of a man
looking outward. Proof or is it?
