Word set: jab(n), suitor, revenge(n), clear(adj), banish
A jab in the finger.
The lancet slips in, a subtle but insistent suitor.
and the red stuff wells out,
life liquid banished
from its fleshy container.
The test strip soaks it up. Conduction.
Under clear plastic, liquid
disturbed again in their rest,
thwarting reflection: their electrochemical revenge.
