I saw two people I know get into an argument
It was heavy and mean, all insults and cursing
I felt like I was watching them grab each other by the arms tugging
Like I could hear the snapping and ripping of the bones and the skin
Then the tendons and the spurt of the blood from the veins and the arteries and the what have you
Like I could see the muscle in the insides of their wrists
Tunnels and holes and seams of the flesh
And dripping and puddles
And then it was done
And then they were done.
And it was never physical, by the way, and they would never do that. But they might as well have been. It would have made less of a scene.
