“Metal on Skin”

by evergreenovella

Skyscraper metallic, this taste stings.
Red mouthed with eardrums like cotton wool,
blinders darken my peripheral.

Just a cut.
Not deep enough to require needle and thread.
Still, you sting and require attention.

You never realize how much you use your thumbs until serrated knives caution tape them out of commission.
