Black, purple, and blue dents,
keepers of the memories and events
that orate a tale of the ego held within.
Each contusion a badge of honor and strength–the true gold metals of life.
A fleshy translucent canvas tinted with the water colors of the human soul
Scarlets, violets, and blues dancing on your skin,
a tango of blood-cells, contractions, and pain.
Confusion and strain.
A sharp intake of breath,
"Jesus christ that fucking hurt"
