What if

what if? he said
inspecting the thumb
of his left hand
what if? he repeated
what if we?
he started to pick
at the raw red skin
around the cuticle
the chewed nail
of the right thumb
dug at the flesh
we could – he continued
unhappy with the result
he bit at the skin
inspected the result
a needle point
a bubble of red appeared
swelled
dripped
i better – i need a plaster
he said heading for the kitchen
