every night the sirens go by and i feel nothingMature

The lights spill over my ceiling;
red and white, red and white -
blood and bone, blood and teeth -
and I feel nothing.
I know girls who follow the ambulances
to the scene and I don’t know if they’re
after the gore of survival or the comfort
of death.
I don’t know which I’m hoping for.

The End
