arms touched by the thinnest blade open along a threadlike line to bleed out over and over again

red ribbon flutters to the floor like a serpent unwinding
proof she was present
her skin gone – entrails eaten
left over buzzards fly about waiting to see if there will be more

more flesh rent open by seamless skin
exposed by her poltergeist as she whirls about
in a hot dance of malevolent flames
