jarred man

image by Manu Pombrol

jarred man
knocked from his senses
floats in a bell jar
reading the last words she’ll ever write him
before she lets loose the tap
then cans his ass
sealing him up
in her soul’s hollow cellar
fluid and jostling
keeping her words to himself

NaPoWriMo 29: 1 more to go….

This piece was written to the prompt at Magpie Tales. It whirled its way out rather quickly.

  1. This ‘jarred man’ is certainly in a pickle! Your poem brought out my revengeful tendencies, a need to get even. “Cans his ass” is brilliantly poetic. Thank you for sharing this, Brenda.
