Miz Quickly’s Day 8: Two Rooms

Muddy Waters

A glass of cold water
and two aspirin.
There’s a crow picking
my skull into tiny bones.
A simmering cranial gap

to a steep slope. Grey trees.
A footbridge pinned down
in reeds and a shallow creek.
You’re a kingdom of rot.
The creak in your bed.

In response to Miz Quickly’s Day 8 “Two Rooms” prompt. I used the room with the glass of cold water, and the room that includes suffering.  Photo by Chinh Le Duc on Unsplash.  Shared with @Experimentsinfc #APoemADay on Twitter   ©Misky 2021
