NaPoWriMo #10

Household Verse Item #9

Suggested by @JaneBeNimble

.
Gauze

.
bandages the hand
your iron seared,
the foot
your lawn mower decided
looked like grass,
the deep wound
when someone
played mumblety-peg
with your aorta

but the first aid kit
only provides enough
to wrap a pinky finger.

I am content
to see the inadequate supply
grow dingy and brown-edged
with disuse in its blue and white
plastic box, buried behind
Q-tips and cough syrup.

May careless lack of planning
be enough to save me.

  1. Hilarious. My favorite lines are:

    the deep wound
    when someone
    played mumblety-peg
    with your aorta

    LOL such a good one. Indeed may your careless lack of planning (and mine) save us both!
