Painful Edges

I'll be offline for a day or two.
Call it a lost battle
with a plastic wrap sharp edge.
I got a gaping hole
alongside my knuckle,
middle finger.
Dearest one is a nurse.
Not much fizzes him.
I'm hopping around in pain,
freaked out by the sight.
He calmly tells me ER would
just put steri strips
on the cut instead of a stitch or two.
So he bandaged it up for me.
I can't bend that finger.
Typing was never meant to be painful.
I would never make a nurse.

Grrr, always on the knuckle. Mend well and then point your finger here because I am blogging again, though differently so.
