The bandage provides cover

a picture of the poem, written using a typewriter.

The bandage provides cover
to heal, protecting the wound
shielding it from view.
The visible indication
to others
saying “I am wounded
and I need time to recover”
An important indicator
yet a bandage is often
something we try to hide.
