the edge is a bruise (from space)

looking down
from space
where the satellites
reside

it seems
just a bruise

grey
in the sky

black
on the ground

red
still red
around too many
edges

but
it is not
like a bruise

when it grows
and
it grows

not like a bruise
the way
it keeps spreading

or
when a hot day
brings
a hotter wind

and
you are standing too close
because
it comes

for you

too fast

I guess
that might be
the problem with a view
too wide
taken
from too far

from
outer space where
it’s so hard to see
small people

like you

and me

caught
by the red
still burning
all
of the edges
