OctPoWriMo #7: Contents


This package contains:

One human skull
29 teeth – lightly ground
and silence.

Wash the skull
before use with warm
and soapy water.

Dishwasher: top rack only.

Apply the silence

And wait.

Eventually, words.

Poet's Note:  The prompt for day 7, even late late late as I am, was silence.  I am not a silence person.  I like the idea of silence.  I sometimes imagine myself going off into the woods to commune with nature...and silence...but...

I let my TV run pretty much all the time.  For the company.  For the white static filler. 

There's something just a little disconcerting about...shutting it all off.

And yet...

Okay, enough ramblings from the poet...yay OctPoWriMo!!!
