Red Paint at Subway

Strange to think, a can of paint
Crimson, spilled life
Still life in motion picture
Lost in battle, captured on video

Walked through
Waded through
Beaches in foreign lands
Accidents at home

Workshop incidents
Paint fights
A contact lens made white
Old tools with onion skins

Cluttered shops with sharp points
Carefully, carefully
Don't spill
Until it's time

Until the lens cap comes off
and the action starts
Until it means something
To see it die
