Therefore Orange Juice is Blood

The top of my right ear lobe is bleeding,

Because I ripped off the scab from an earlier shaving accident,

After my mid-day jog and shower,

As I dried my hair with my boxer shorts,

Because my towel was wet and pulpy,

Because I spilled orange juice all over it.

I have traveled and lived in Taiwan, China, and Japan and am now a professor of Asian history and author of Southern Rain, a novel of seventeenth-century China.
