I forgot that yesterday was World Poetry Day and all I wrote was a measly haiku! On alternate Mondays at dVerse, we’re directed to write a poem of exactly 44 words with a given starter word – today it is Melt. I’d hoped to write something scintillating to make up for yesterday, but all I could come up with was this non-poem:
A square of chocolate
melts in my hand
before I can put it into my mouth
which is where it is meant to melt.
The chocolaty hand
finds its way mysteriously
to somewhere that it shouldn’t be:
my clean white blouse.
Result? Meltdown tantrum.
