Tarnished Loop Of Memory

The silver ring tight on my finger
dark band of sulphide on my flesh
I apply hand lotion, wrench it painfully
with a dull ring the messy disc falls
I throw it into my jewel box
it lies there forgotten like him.

  1. “wrench it painfully” I can almost see the face contorts with the labor of this effort. Always enjoy reading a poem that has good ear for sound and pacing and ends with a punch.
