NPM – 25 of 30

My pal, Lindsay White, posts a monthly writing challenge. For June it was to write a poem where the total number of words match your age. So mine is 46.

Workout #46

my sweat smells sour
as I work to lose
what I can only kindly
describe as grief weight

extreme heat presses
around me while I move
little puffs of breeze
bring no immediate relief

my imperfect body
dutifully carries me
sometimes with grace
always with worth
