Day 19 NaPoWriMo 2021

NaPoWriMo Day 19: A Rant

A Few Bugaboos

jigsaw puzzles missing pieces
clocks displaying the incorrect time
a sliver in my finger that I can’t see
unflushed toilets
photos that fade
a curry stain on my favourite blouse
car alarms
litter in the hedgerows
a drippy tap
alarm clocks on Sundays
plastic flowers on graves
wide-body cars in the carpark
unmade beds
watery eyes and a stuffed up hea
and long goodbyes

PA AprilPAD Day 19: Animal in the title
(reworked from The Poeming of today)

The Lady Mouse

took off her scarf,
and she tied it over her head.

it smelled of mice,
edgy and sharp.

and behind the window
into the empty air,

she blew a kiss,
….. but not a wet one.
