Vigorously Upbeat
by Kelly Rice

Vigorously upbeat
Flashing panicky and
Overtly audacious

He fidgets

Alone in a room
To a tepid water faucet

Strenuously standing
With his hands out under
Running luke warm water

All along the dresser and nightstand
Lay a-strew empty beer bottles
Disheveled and impure
Lay out old pictures on the floor
And in a suit case sitting open on the bed

His bare feet stood
On the bathroom floor
In a pool of blood
Where he shaves his face
And cuts the butt of his chin off

Dripping down his neck and
His naked shaved chest
He leans over the toilet
And grabs a towel from the rack
He lifts it to his face
In attempt to clean up

The blood soaks through the cotton
And all through the room
The porcelain white tile
Lavish in blackened crimson liquid

He lifts his head back
