For a Thorn on a rose
This is a very short prose
Something you heed
When you no longer bleed
Leap, flinch, pinch, suck clean after the gore
Find your hand back into it desiring some more.

I really like that fourth line. Nicely descriptive.

Ghoulish stuff, but not without its wit and charm, thanks to the choice of vocabulary and construction. Like Halloween in February.
