  You could have a big dipper   

Prediction by Robert Allen

c/w: blood

One day you will

cut yourself

slicing a bagel

with a serrated knife.

It's a given

like the sun

or love-ache.

Just a schmear

of blood

on the keyboard

as its aftertaste


Robert Allen lives in northern California, where he writes poems, takes long walks, and looks at birds. More at Twitter: @RobertAllenPoet
