Hiding Remains, Nothing Remains

You told me once
blaming the careful incisions you made
on cats was your teenage years

Scratching your surface

Like the trees do when it’s windy
Sweeping through the clouds
Hitting the nervous sky

Pricking it yet again

like me at my acne
trying to relieve the pressure
from those swollen glands

Squeezing the peeling

Like when you are preparing carrots
Quickly ripping shreds from them
So they fall thickly on the counter

Hiding the remains

With cats or clouds
With the shirt over my back
With the trash can

Until nothing remains

Keep digging
You won’t find anything
But more pain
