She drags the pen across the page
Back, forth
Back and forth
Ink begins to pour from the page

Seeping out through lacerated pores where the pen

was dragged.
It sticks- adhesive- to her skin, and melts into her,

tattooing patterns across her hands, and draining into her arms,

Shattered fragments from the page

Stamped- stagnant, dead- onto her living skin-

emulating life.
She is

decrepit, decaying, desiccated skin

torn up by the jagged ink- stained steel,
Yet the ink persists-

drip, drop, trickling off the page,

puncturing the ripped flesh-

burning the remaining skin

Causing it to blister and swell- adding red to the


Fragments of text peel white and fall-

dust to the ground.

The arm now fire- red, black, and blue blend-

blurring brown

She is

becoming broken

Broken by the pattern she bears.
