Returning to the scene of a crime

Never has shrapnel been gouged out with more frozen and clammy fingers

of pinker or more tender flesh

The bandaged wound is inconspicuous

in how it seeps red tears

Only when the maroon dampness crusts over the mesh

could victim risk peeking beneath

Hoping to find new skin

hardly scarred
