I have sprung a leak

I have sprung a leak
This knife here has taken something from me
A cut on my palm, another line to read
Will the chirologist observe a long life, will they see
That it is nothing but a culinary mistake?
But what are these little mistakes anyways
Signs that we are ones to make little mistakes
In our daily lives, in our rare lives, accidents
Which are not accidents at all, just a reminder
That some of us like to bleed
