Blood

gave blood today
saved a life today
gave blood today
saved a life today

watched the flowing through the plastic
watched the darkness of my heart blood
watched the ceiling fan slow turning
watched the darkness of my heart blood

gave blood today
saved a life today
gave blood today
saved a life today

thought of how many teaspoons needed
thought of other reasons bleeding
thought of walking home soon after
thought of other reasons bleeding

lucky to be giving
lucky I’m not needing
lucky to be giving
lucky I’m not needing

gave blood today
saved a life today
gave blood today
saved a life today
