write-now

I am working on a new collection of poems.  In this recent poem, I am trying to capture a particular state of mind (not a good day).

Fused

 

 

 

Thin skin

breaks

in delicate places

rubbed into an open wound

mends

to split again.

 

 

Underwired 

without insulation

a spark catches 

incandescent

runs wild

on fragile threads.

 

 

The wrong note

sets in train a chain reaction

panic pulsing

bead to bead

enflaming 

irritation.
