30-Day Poetry: 30

Day 30—Write a poem employing extended metaphor to illustrate the experience of the last thirty days.


The jar with molasses
never runs dry, but it does run slow.

Sweet and sticky,

before I can ever get
any in my mouth. The sweet

isn’t for the faint
of heart—it’s made more than one

soul sick
with emotion.
