His head split red to the skull
like a ripe dragonfruit
the slow drip of blood on
his shoes
tattooed fish curl over his wrists
to the black ink "truth"
under his mouth in Japanese.
He is the first sound in Schizophrenic
and the last word in backward somersaults
gone awry.
Bobby was another patient I met in the Psychiatric Emergency ward. He suffers from Schizophrenia, and while deluded, tried to do a backwards somersault, and split his head down to the bone. He needed eight stitches. Bobby was very lovely and gentle, and had beautiful tattoos.
