Sushi for Magpie Tales #55

Magpie Tales 55 Each week Willow posts an enigmatic image to draw out writers' words. This week:







Sushi

fork-pricked flesh
on the wrong side of pane

a nightmarish smear
of yellow and crimson

the cutting edge shifts
from KP to ER

sushi rolls linger
on the wrong side of pain

My mother had an accident like that (involving an avocado not a lemon). I wish I could have put it so nicely!

Reflections said...

Such a dilectable take on the prompt... love the shifts from KP to ER, as sushi rolls linger on the wrong side of pain. Nicely done.

Brigid said...

Excellent, interesting twist on the Magpie prompt.

Wrong side of pain - great line Tumblewords.

"From KP to ER." LOL.

Love it.

Lyn said...

This is clever...really enjoyed it...and it could happen!!

Helen said...

I have prepared my fair share of sushi ... preparer, beware indeed.

Lolamouse said...

Nice one! I always watch the sushi chefs with awe as they maniacally slice and dice so quickly and make everything look so beautiful. I wonder how many trips to the ER they have before they perfect their art!

Mary said...

Very good - watch out for that sushi!

Tess Kincaid said...

I like your use of pane/pain. Well done.

Suz said...

oh ..n i c e!

kp to er....very good

The only thing more violent is hot oil. Another reason I never fry anything.

Leslie said...

haha! you're making me cringe at the thought of it all...

Selma said...

You are so clever. Such a treat. I bow to you :D

Ami Mattison said...

Ouch! Love your use of pane/pain and KP to ER. Reminds me of an incident when I worked in a fast food Chinese diner. It was indeed nightmarish.
Really clever take on the prompt!

lissa said...

accident-prone? your words always provoke some usual thoughts.

it's nice to visit here again.

Lena said...

KP to ER, neat little move.

LKHarris-Kolp said...

Ouch... love KP to ER.

Jinksy said...

Loved the pane/pain play on words here.

Many a cook winds up in the ER...maybe that is why I avoid it....perfect words...bkm

jabblog said...

I like the word play - very neat:-)

Bee's Blog said...

So clever as always. I can learn from you.

I prefer watching the chefs than eating the Sushi in real life I recently sat directly opposite one as he did his 'thing'. I'm still alive!

kavisionz said...

OUCH!! Such "incidents" happen when my dearest is around.. they happen with HIM ofcourse :) I just hang around to tidy up the "mess" :)

Anyway, all the sushi talk is making me hungry now.. :)

Enjoyed your creative take on the prompt... short, but very effective!

annell said...

Wow⁄ I guess I should have expected...it snuck up on me.

annell said...

I should have expected it, but it snuck up on me.

Kristen Haskell said...

Oh I ended up at the er with accident however it was the avocado that took me out.

ds said...

I once sliced the top of my finger off, so this one is appreciated on several levels! Great wordplay. Thanks!
