2020-10-09 – Sore Throat

tell me a secret,
and i’ll spill
three,

give me five
minutes..

then i’ll leave
you be,

are you free to
shed a little
light on
this

quickly
scribbled
note?

can’t tell if that ink
spot smudged
above your
i‘s..

+++

a halo, or just the
lasso roping
life’s

sore
throat.

    • Wow, thank you.. that’s a thoughtful comment. Sometimes I find that pairing unsettling matter with an almost nursery rhyme rhythm can create a particular feeling… often not so pleasant! 🙂 Thanks for taking the time to read.

      • My pleasure friend. I got that actually. Quite a trick you have up your sleeves. I found it particularly fascinating. Thank you. I guess I’ll be coming back for more of these kind.
