There is no situation, facet, or aspect of life that cannot be improved with pizza. -Daria

Scarred, swollen, and sensitive
Blistered, broken, and beautiful
Fleshy stumps curled into fists
Carefully sculpted hands that carve rock against a cyan sky
If I died by his hands, I’d be honored
If I lived by his fists, I’d be ashamed
Red is the color of
A dress I once loved
Red is the color of
His hands

This was inspired by the brilliant Utah landscape, the red desert.
