R E D E M P T I O N

Amalgamations of gray sit
Undisturbed beneath her skin
Sheโ€™s like putty
Everyone she meets is newspaper
She is red from internal wars
When her skin met theirs she read
Like old clothing theyโ€™d become articles
Thrown away by others
Her waist chokes on the scarf of hope
Hiding the ink she’s swallowed
