Prayers, Portraits, Post-Its (16)

Knives in High Places

What were you thinking? I don't say you of all people
since anyone much past diapers should know sharpness
and top cupboards don't mix. And balanced on a plate?
What, so you could slice and nibble in ten seconds less?
Fate was civil. Your scar will give your glance new depth
and serve as a reminder, though why you'd need one–
Surely you recall some diagram of The Eye
or those peeled grapes that made us gasp on Hallowe'en.
