The man makes circles
with his fourth finger
on a faux wood table.

A woman weaves into
the white ring
of her coffee mug.

His head pulls back
up to the light above:
What do you want?

Her chair falls away.
The mug tips over.
She leaves a single

swatch of blood.
His finger wipes over it,
brings it to his lips.
