21 – road rash

knees skinned

and bleeding out

arms barely bent

crashing again

.

rocks embedded

on sore red palms

and bruised elbows

cause falling again

.

ankles sprained

and depleted lungs

stinging, screaming

colliding yet again

.

injuries all counted

lost count of new pain

too tired yet too wired

cold concrete, again
