a prompt just flew into my ear...
I see blood on a map
a map of a city
tracing patterns of streets
and boulevards
and all the avenues of wounded
souls.

Some neighborhoods appear
far worse, than others
some seem to have escaped
so far - unscathed.

If not for the bled red,
the patterns would hardly show up
at all, but now what to do?
How to wipe it up?
Remove the stain, the pain
Up on the wall, it's only just an
organized and gathered bit
of information.

Out there -
it's more than just spattered dots.
