Consume

Annette Benedetti

My 2016 New Year’s Resolution is to write something (for myself) every day, even if it’s just one sentence.

Day 2

Consume

Like small, round stones
I held my words  cupped in both palms
then pitched them across the distance at you
hoping they’d strike their mark.

Instead, with bent knees
you caught them one by one
placed them between your lips
and swallowed them whole.
