NaPo 07 #1: Renewal

And thus another National Poetry Writing Month commences: If you don't like poetry, then steer clear of this blog for the rest of the month. Then again, if you don't like poetry, what the blithering hell ar you doing here in the first place? Huh?


We severed the band together, took a saw
to its dulled sheen and rasped atoms
of metal into the air. Soap had failed

to ease its passage. Later we shopped
for a larger token. I would not sacrifice
a single digit of yours to a mere symbol

of our expanding love.

There. Didn't hurt at all.
