  This is what it's like to toss fear, 

wet, across the ground where it will

run in rivulets with mud and melting

  clay. 

I came back to read these lines again today and I'm amazed at how raw and fresh they are. Have you published any poems?

Oh gosh, thanks so much! That is very kind of you to say. I grinned at a few of your lines as well, especially this one, which resonated with me:

    but instead buy a carton of juice for the boyfriend

    not wanting to be doctrinaire

    about anything, even orange juice.

I have indeed published poems in Maudlin House, Rat's Ass Review, Poetry Pacific, and The Scarlet Leaf Review. I haven't been submitting much lately and have hit a bit of a dry spell in my writing, but I plan to get back into the swing of things soon! I'd love to appear in lit.cat -- it's such a fun publication with mixed media, which I appreciate.

I was just looking through previous #todayswritingprompt and found another lovely thing you wrote.
