Slip while walking
onto cold, slippery tiles into the bathroom
for the twentieth time.
Land on your right arm
break it like a twig.

Or, forget to put the lights on
slam into the wall like a bird
smashing into glass. Carelessly
put the faucet on too hot and /or high.

Or, fall
split your head open on the tap
like a banana being peeled.

Or, put too much soap on your hands
get it in your eyes.
Be blind for the rest of the week.

Realise you have an online math test tomorrow.
