Art bleeds, 

Nobody’s seen before —

Winged ring,

Mortally wounded.  

Some kids arrows —


Forever trickling,  

Whenever someone’s — 


Knives, gunshots wounds. 

Whether they’re sick —

On pain medication. 

Or dead in sleep.

Winged circle bleeds, 

For generations. 

Weeping blood,

For death is —


Yet in darkness, 

Gleams old magic, 

Hope’s recourse,
