investigating blood

February 15, 2010 at 7:47 am (Uncategorized) ()

a single splash on the sheet.

definitely a splash,

because there is splatter

(I watch too much CSI these days),

implying that it dropped from a height.

definitely human,

(the cat sleeps on the landing).

he did cut himself shaving Friday night

but returned with the obligatory tissue swab

(and annoyed,

it seems to make him annoyed,

out of proportion with the blood loss.)

but perhaps it could be mine


neither pregnant nor menopausal,

at that stage where either might be

a possibility.

still wondering how it got there,

all by itself,

not a smudge or a smear,

but a single neat drop

(with splatter).
