#11 NaPoWriMo

APRIL 11 — Here is my poem #11 for National Poetry Writing Month, composed in response to a prompt on ReadWritePoem: write about something not chosen. This poem invents a fictional situation.

RESISTANCE
.
I will not pluck you
little nut meat
last whole almond on the
scalloped silver tray
.
brown smudge, pulp
stationed inside its shell
plumped, salty
swallow-worthy
.
I lift my glass, sip
here’s to you
choice I did not take
declined to taste
.
here’s to your pleasure
in place of mine
.
