Today’s Short #Poem 231

Waffle

These last five years,
you know, that I know,
you’ve been playing me
like a metal axe.
I tuned myself to an open chord
just so it was easy for you.
I’ve done it before,
I’ll do it again.

The playpen door was open.
Your toys were out of the box.

I don’t come out of this very well.
Never do.
