misfortune

it spilled
across the rain slicked
sidewalk
in a puddle
of the deepest
crimson
a waterfall
of ruby
with pink foam
as it sprayed
serenely
in great arcs
into the misty
overcast morning
in the center
of nowhere
population
everyone

all he could do
is stare
dumbfoundedly
at the white plastic cap
in his hand
as the geyser
erupted
from the plastic bottle
a fine coating
of strawberry
oversweetness
seemed to permeate
his soul
as his friends
stood laughing
at his misfortune
