NaPoWriMo Day 3 – Slap

A slap to the face

Leaves a red mark

Obvious, critical, easily criticised

So we shun

Physical violence.

A heart racing

Blood pumping

Veins jumping

Throat popping and retching

Hands tingling

Muscles twanging

Tired, old guitar strings

Tired of being played;

Not so obvious

So criticism

Not so easily received


Just believe

You don’t have to understand

But a slap to the mind

Is still a slap.
