Kiik A-K

where is all this blood coming from

Where is all this blood coming from
The sky is the obvious answer 

Where the second ocean lives
The twin sister who could levitate 

She always brought birds to the potluck
Her dreams are a bit upside-down 

As a result they are too honest
And she is flagellated 

Honesty is also its own punishment
As is being a short man

Why is good shit up so high father
Because that is where it began
