hemostasis (n).


The world is hemorrhaging
and we stand around with
hands full of gauze
blinking at each other. 

May we be quicker to speak, "This
is where it hurts, " "This
is when I have felt silenced," "This
is how I need your help." 

the world is hemmorhaging
and we stand around with
gauze in our hands, 
arguing about the side of a coin
we can't put down.
