a zoo in hell


hungry like the wolf

I am thinking about how little writing I've read which describes the smell of blood in the air. Because of my new condition, I bleed copiously from the slightest wound.

I scratched absently at a mosquito bite the other night. Noticed a strong salty and metallic smell; after looking out the window, and at the cat, I realized there was a small stream of bright red blood running down the length of my forearm.

I really wonder what we smell like when we are opened up.
I intend to find out.
