Afterthought 149—Over-Exposed

Posted in curtal sonnet by maggie on 2015/05/25

Warning: your home's at risk!  Flash flood
on hurricane force winds threatens doom
from which you'll find no recovery nor relief. 

Don't blame me.  Blessing's what's in my blood
and blood I spill.  My mother's vacant tomb
fortunately doesn't feed on unbelief. 

So, doesn't it take a scar to do skin most good?
Each ill word will its own black eschar earn
of exposure to moonlight however brief —
                       severe burn!
