Tessa, If She’d Acted Different

Testy’s the word, at least,
sitting through lunch,
wildly gestulating hands
flailing my face.

Lost track of what’s not said.
A museum of photos now.
Like would Eve have acted any
different? Ooh, red apple!

Prompt:

O God, it’s only Day 3

“Take the phrase “If I’d Only (blank),” replace the blank with a word or phrase, make the new phrase the title of your poem, and then write the poem. Possible titles include: “If I’d Only Asked Her Out,” “If I’d Only Gone Left Instead of Right,” “If I’d Only Taken That Chance,” etc. Don’t wonder what would’ve happened if you’d only written that poem; get to it now!”
