Sides (a poem)

up side, down side.
right side upside down side.
and above or below.
bruises, bruises, bruises,
covered in black and blueness
skin. flesh. body. organs. wash away the
empty the insides clean and nice and new.
creating something from nothing.
breathe in, breathe out.
breathe up, breathe down. breathe more
anxiety. society. changes:
the things inside that eat us alive.
stitches replacing nipples.
taking away the strength,
replacing it with newness;
making-betterness; something
in which to caress.
under side and over side
down side & up side
it's right side and left side.
and isn't life such a ride!
