Rob Schackne #403 - A Faint Dictionary Of Scars (1) "Hard & fearless"

Hard & fearless

On a good day
How the body speaks

With all this skin it says
Where do you begin

I hear a shout
Saltwater expelled
Two lungs filled
Light and different touch
Bleeding from a forceps cut
On a small cheek

At this point
We were scared
With the noisy air
The first punch
We went rigid
Exhausted in a minute

Who remembers this
When form started
Regret kicking in
All that jazz
Pain wrapped up
Something hurting
