as the blood drips
and fills the lines
surrounding my knees
it reminds me of
the way fresh fallen snow
fills all the holes
of the world

i remember being a child
and waiting
with anticipation
for the first snowfall
of the new season
and how when it came
i would run outside

Listening to snow
crunching under my feet
and i would lay
and let the cool snow
caress my body
as i make a perfect
snow angel
