tools of the trade

in hollow bones
you won't find dried blood
I cleaned all
with wire
I have tools
I'm not a chicken
nor am I an egg

who cares what I am
as long as I clean blood

  22. This kinda/sorta creeped me out and I'm not exactly sure why.

    The imagery is dark and compelling... I feel like I want to know more.

    Amazing use of a difficult prompt.

  23. This was interesting -- I could say it was suggesting a macabre curious twist. Or it simply does not matter what "others think"
