Poem 342 – I Burned My Tongue & YIN Link & Open House tonight!

I Burned My Tongue

hot gravy oozing over meat
scorched the centre
now it’s rough with tender pain

sometimes hunger does that –
brings a biting, hasty excitement
scarring a song of soreness
on a body part for further harkening

I roll my tongue under my
front teeth, try to lift the tantrummed tissue
will my speech be different today –
smouldering in yesterday’s haughty hunger?

One thought on “Poem 342 – I Burned My Tongue & YIN Link & Open House tonight!

  1. Hi Vanessa, I think there will be “ many sore tongues this year”. There’s too much hunger for food and fun, the “ good times”. I’ll do my best to be up for “ Yin “Tomorrow ,
