Cutting

It wasn’t so difficult when it came to it –
the freshly whetted blade sliced nicely;
no need to saw through twitching tissue.
 

(Years of watching Pop sharpen knives
to gut fish finally came in handy)
 

I watch as chunks of me plop
into the cheap plastic bucket –
no sense in using the good one.
 

I’ll be off now then.
Be a love and clean up the blood
before you leave would you?
