Like red food colored cookies
nearly risen under a baking heat
Blood
My agape dots across
white and gold-speckled formica
in accidental uniformity

Lovely in the crimson-neither
An ether land of comprehension

A flail chest
Splayed
Ribs stretched
A bleeding of a blood
Glistening
It falls
Drops in dots
and rests bravely in drops
Across the counter-top

….I was chewing a cherry candy-cane when it happened

…Or, I could have been doing anything
Something
Or even nothing when it happened
