My mouth is an open wound.
It took sixteen years to scab over, but then I picked at it
So now it's bleeding secrets again.
I staple it shut when I leave for school in the morning
And the excess liquid forces its way out of my eyes,
Always at the worst times.
At least a nosebleed gets you a pass to the nurse.
Back home, in the bathroom, I pluck the metal bits out one by one
and vomit red onto the mirror.
The door is locked. I have plenty of time to clean up.
