Day 11: GoDogGo Café and JusJoJan

A BOOK CALLED THE SWEETNESS OF WATER
                assuming the water is poisoned

A sardonic rat sits on
a stone. Watching me.
Eyes like flames
and shrieking murder.
Wolfish rat, who eats
a poisoned apple,
inwardly grinning at his pleasure.
Foolish rat, soon sleeping
deep in rooted red poppies.
Your chance for a life
crossed into our
cosmopolitan sympathies.


Written for GoDogGo Café. A Book called “Today a Woman Went Mad in the Supermarket” – Constraint: The title of a book is included in the title or the body of your poem, and JusJoJan’s word “Cosmopolitan”. ©Misky 2022. Shared with #amwriting #jusjojan #GoDOGGoCafe  #GreatReadsPromptChallenge
