blood, the octane

which fuels this mortal engine

flows like an icy river

and congeals in my soul

when I see the visions

that lay broken

oozing in their life juice

lying like stranded driftwood

that the sea forgot

blood, that fiery intoxicant

which imbibes these brain cells

with wild thoughts and steams

my beating heart

– which clouds my vision

with vapour illusions-

everytime she wanders by

blood that precious elixir

which sustains life

and drains it away

flows through me

feeds me life

keeps me running

giving me sustenance

substance and the ability to be
