out damn spot

standing
in the water
watching the blood rise, like
wine pooling in the wee washcloth
below
spigot wide open, truth rushes
to the surface, a whole
nother reason
to hide.

  2. love your cinquains! I write them too, sometimes. In fact I tried on of my free-verse pieces as a piece in cinquain stanzas. I enjoy experimenting

    Cheers for the visit
