Day 20: Two-Thirds is A Fine Fraction

Whoa.

Yesterday, this blog had the most one-day views ever. Not sure why, but keep reading, people!  An poem acceptance email was also waiting for me this morning, so I started the day feeling all-around appreciated. A nice feeling.

For today, another short draft in the “mouth” series…

When Regret is a Paper Cut

on the tongue, bloodless, rubbing

against the rough pearls of the molars,

healing seems impossible, each word

a reminder, a re-opening of the tear,

each passed opportunity a thorn

throbbing in the tender lingual veins,

each sorry I cannot say a spoonful

of salt, stinging, burning a stain.
