It's all about...

It was always about the blood he had said
and she agreed
-she had been leaving bloodied footprints on uneven surfaces
for as long as she could remember.

It was about the calling they had said
and she agreed
-she knew all too well what it was to peel back her day face
and scream out to God on a dark night.

It’s all about sacrifice they lectured
and she agreed
-she was after all fluent in burnt chop syndrome
and held a masters in invisible.

It’s all about love she said
and they agreed
-and added a list of conditions
