How Can I Be Benign (Again)? | A Poem by Ananya S. Guha

How can I be benign again
blood on my hands
yours too
blood in the skies
spilled on the road
wipe them off, how can I be benign again?
Mild flutter of the wind
blood stutters
blood in these rains from the firmament
how can I be benign again
as it takes time for the blood to coagulate, turn fiery red?
