The sting

I look out,

lift the shade,

inch closer

to rapport,

until their

cactus sting

brings me crawling

back to the

cave once more.

For the month of April I’ll be posting poems more often—maybe even once per day, in honor of National/Global Poetry Month.  As a reader of poetry you may already know that it is Poetry Month, but just in case, here are some interesting links:
