NaPoWriMo Day 8 – The Maybes Of A Disaster (Freeverse)

Everything happened in a second.
There’s not much difference between fingers and tomatoes.
Both are soft, with the right amount of flesh, though tomatoes are not blessed with bones and nerves.
Then there’s the blood which is the colour of the tomatoes.
How would a blender guess?
Maybe the blades yearned for something more than vegetables, spices, and condiments.
Maybe the jar was a shapeshifting vampire.
Maybe the electricity was starved for a disaster in the household.
Maybe the knob despised the number zero.
Maybe a demon resented poetry.
Maybe it wanted me to offer a part of me that didn’t engage in the act of writing poetry.
Maybe a calamity had to just happen.
