Hush

Sshhh…

be still your bleeding heart.

In the wild darkness, breathe even,

do not whimper.

They cannot find what they cannot hear.

And bite this stick–

I’ll cauterize your wound.

They cannot find what they cannot smell.

Sshhh

rub dirt in your eyes,

just in case.

It hurts less when you don’t see them coming.
