Hiking – rule 2

Wear red lipstick

So it can match the blood

Dripping from your shattered toes

Your battered feet

And your broken ankles

Wear red lipstick

So it can match the blood

Dripping from your eyes

Your nose

And your dry, parched lips

Wear red lipstick

So it can match your black eyes

Your bumps, bruises

And shredded skin

Wear red lipstick

Even though this hike

is going to end up

killing you

You will

At least

Look gorgeous

When you’re dead.

Wear red lipstick.  It’s a rule.
