I knew today’s prompt wasn’t something I could sink my teeth into, so I offer this poem written during my creative blitz over the weekend. Peace to your ♥ !
Seven-Course Meal APPETIZER I have eaten here before and after and also in between. SALAD When I overeat I forget the way to my heart is not through my stomach? ENTRÉE I have a feeling when I stuff my emotions down my throat—heartburn. DESSERT When tempted, close eyes. Open eyes, open bag, open mouth. Shut up, conscience. OF COURSE I am powerless to resist desire, and it is gnawing at me. OF COURSE I can exercise restraint, but I need a leash or a trainer. OF COURSE I know better than to give up. It’s worse than giving in. © Stephanie Malley NaPoWriMo20 Day 21 - I didn't use today's NaPoWriMo.net prompt.
