from bed

the itch started at my neck

i wasn’t quite able to resist the temptation

claw marks raw 

drawing eyes

it’s then i noticed it on my thighs

it’s not easy satiating that need

at the pool 

it’s starting to bleed

i had to go home

my feet 

now it’s my feet

changing lanes, racing cars, finger edging out my shoe, i bent too far, my eyes lost the road

i hopped a curb

into a light

i’m finally scratched

good night.
