There Is a Napkin So You Can Wipe Away the Blood

I have folded myself
into trouble.
My whole life, it's like I've been 
saying, "Hey, trouble, look!"
Glad I am good to my wife and kids.
That's good to me.
I court bad stuff and think
hard about it.
Very hard. This rock-
diamond doesn't fit in a ring.
Instead, it pushes back.
Your finger is a weakling in comparison
and the dead bone inside
knows it and 
is super happy.
