Palms are dripping with sweat and blood.
Skin is hot to the touch.
Anger the color of my flesh.
Eyes focused on a single soul.
Oblivious to everyone around me.
I stand planted firmly on my ground.
My vision obstructed by a red tint.
The color of blood was my sunglasses.
I feel hands, tugging and pulling, still, I stand firm.
This man, I don’t know, lying motionless.
His blood dripping from my fist.
The tint fades from my eyes.
Why am I standing here?
Who is that guy?
My memory a blank slate.
One minute I’m drinking and laughing.
Next, I see a red light, and nothing.
Now here with also tears rolling from my face
The people around me look as if they had just seen a monster.
People tending to the man get him to respond.
A relief comes over me.
The man is still alive.
This ain’t me, who did this me.
