Blood vessels ruptured into crescents beneath his pupils like tiny chalices filling with blood.  He kissed her neck.   Pain splintered from below his heart and out behind him, beneath his shoulder blade. It felt as if someone had tried to drive a stake through his heart but missed.  It had been a long night.  She put her hand up to where he kissed and there was blood.  He kissed her hand away. The Missouri-Pacific blew through.  The sun was rising and the sinking chalice of a crescent moon was filling with light.  He kissed her neck once more.  He was going underground.
