Scald – #NaPoWriMo20 – Day 8

#inktober19 Add comments

Hi 😊

What creative shenanigans have you been up to at home today?

I was given a choice of twitter poetry bot accounts to steal a word or phrase from, in order to launch a poem of my own. I plucked a line from Silvia Plath (probably predictably?).


The scald scar of water

On this witch’s cheek…

Only saved from dissolution

By the earthly salt

Reminding, with its taste,

That vinegar, too, must not proceed

Where honey should prevail.


Overtures of patriarchy, parable and pop culture, anyone?!

Annnd onwards to Day 9…

Stay safe, lovely people!
