Rust

Photo taken by Thomas, in his living room, March 2019. Image Description: Thomas sits shirtless on the floor of his living room in front of his couch covered in colorful pillows and blankets. Album covers hang on the wall behind him as he closes his eyes, stretches his neck, and breathes in a deep breath. His top surgery scars trace thin, pink smiles across his chest.

Your life

your flesh and

blood life

your most precious

ore ever mined

life from this earth

whose veins gush with

the same iron as your life
