Missive from old and remote
Had to skirt past the centuries standing round
I hope that you’re better than I been
But I couldn't say nothing, burned in silence
My book is tore up and worn
Couldn't make a new entry
Dark lines from folding where I have been
Up to my mythmaking, treasure mapping
My heart is sewn up and sore
You had to pull at the stitches all poking out
You wrote a letter that severed em
Now my souvenir sutures split and spattered
All down my arm and on my palm
Blood on my hand
Warm and wet
