ALMOST TWO POEMS

Published October 13, 2021 by Nan Mykel

POWDER PUFF WORDS

She’s staying at the “Laurels.”

At  Obleness her nurse was “Summer.”

Amazing what a difference

words can make.

“Mimosa,” the pink blooms, the lacy

leaves, an apron of delight.

Words become painted with use.

But how explain the loveliness

of “mayonnaise?”

DIFFICULT QUESTIONS

As a newbie at the door, two

questions are problematic.

If worse comes to worse,  should I

be resusitated?  (Ask the kid who was

cut out of my will).

And…how much pain do I feel,

right now?

(No pain, no gain.  Don’t hurt enough,

nothing to soothe).

Words

Words can TOUCH.

Words can chatter.

Words can tell you

what’s the matter.

Words can cut,

splice and dice.

In other words,

be not nice.

Lying words

I’ve come to hate;

Embers dying in the grate.

Empty words like love

and forever

go poof like bubbles

In bad weather.

So what can I say

when all is done?

Add a grain of salt

To everyone.
