Imprint – NaPoWriMo Day 19

Imprint

Black smear of light bulb envy
the scar on my finger forces a mark
a blade of glass
and the shallow bleed
makes my pulse race
with fingered excitement.

Place a hand palm down
on the unforgiving surface
run until blood becomes water
keep running until numb becomes blinking pain
grab the bulb and squeeze
until lacerations become retribution.

Flash a jolt with searing slicing
and resort to being 16 again.
