Like Fire


by Edgy Sack

Scripture reading of the day

Tongue like fire

Able to set a forest ablaze


Middle aged, most past seventy, women all

No one talks of their own tongue

Too aware of fires we ourselves have set

Words that cannot be called back

Whether to husband, children, or friend

With Thanksgiving soon approaching, we speak of our

favorite pumpkin dessert, turkey weights we will purchase

Lost relatives, prodigals, cost of butter

Like fire we do not want to touch our words
