full of blood

write a poem that incorporates overheard speech.

“she was full of blood”

she was pulsing and messy
lying easily to her masters
pretty faced, and wet between the thighs
she survived

she kept forgetting her name
no one could say it anyway
the rhythm of it, twist of tongue
no one knew what it meant

she was full of blood
when she thought of running she felt heavy
how could she carry all this life
far enough and farther, before sunrise
