on nosebleeds

That palm-smeared red flower blossoming down your fingers; reminding you of when tying shoelaces was an accomplishment. When falling down wasn't a blessure, but a scrap - a prize worthy of adhesive and swift kiss. It is the instinct to lean back and (*) give yourself an aneurysm. *swallow; to take back what was once yours.
