Self-portrait As A Lily-white Fist

Humanness does allow for some prudent bleeding.
                              I am ungloved in a sabbath of spit. Only the turn of cement can arc Black.
                              I am blue damage, mother-gut & tower. Truth: we are all for rent.
                              Red, lined systems. The door out is green & full.
