my mother sharpens
Issue 14.1 | 30 June 2014
a good one :)
Thank you snaky, Irena and Marie for taking the time to comment on my poem. I'm glad you all got something from it.
Great juxtaposition! The final line came as a wonderful surprise.
Ah ha – the matriarch has spoken! Good one John :)
Certainly a mother has to have, within her armoury, a cache of hard and sharp words to protect her flock. Sometimes alas the mother turns on a member of the flock and that is a time to watch out.
A darkly fun juxtaposition of fingernails and fingernail moons with words getting sharpened.
