MLMM ~ Wordle #254 ~ #Poetry

Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie

Walking towards the glowing archway
My sister said Phlegethon,
Watch out for fairies
She loved to throw out big words
It’s Sunday, mum thinks we are in church
I kick a tin can, bored
I wanted to smuggle my bike from the shed
Mum was watching from the kitchen window
I swear she is psychic
She knows how to dig things from my mind
I crack my knuckles
I yell to my sister not to step
into the triangle of flowers
Too late, I felt time flip. She was gone
I heard the whisper of her voice
Telling me it’s all right
The mellifluous voice
that followed her message
Sounded sickly sweet,
too smooth for my liking
What the hell am I to tell mum
Or does she know all ready?
