In the Spring time,

The cool Earth gives me a second chance.

My nose turns pink and my eyes all watery.

The sunlight warms my scabs and closes them smoothly.


In the Summer time,

I run freely in hopes of never stopping.

My body forms its own constellation of pink stars.

Love makes my scabs turn ripe.


In the Fall,

I get lonely.

Air runs through my lungs, waiting impatiently.

My scabs open up again. The blood flows beautifully like a river down my surfaces.


In the Winter,

I am hidden in my own shadows.

My face turns pale and my lips cracked dry.

My scabs harden. They are now rough-textured and brown.
