  1. This is it for me today:

    If you try to turn my nose
    like some old, mottled, bumpy knob –
    you will not open a door to my past
    or turn the key to my heart –
    you will just make me mad
    and shout “Hey! Ouch!”

    2. *turns toes in, dips head, looks up from under lashes* "I sorry!" *fingers crossed behind back*

  2. Q, right away when I read I thought of control which is generally resisted. Under my workbench I have the "twitch" we used on our horses when they needed a procedure such as trimming their hooves, etc. It is a wooden short handle tool. One end has a short loop of rope to put around the horse's nostrils and the other end has a handle for the vet or owner to twist. That subdues the horse so they can be helped by a human. I suppose it might work on a human as well if the instrument was made on a smaller scale. Using it was not thought of as being inhumane. Did you have this twitching in mind when you wrote?

    1. You have perfected your garrote my friend –
      that silken love knot you slipped around my heart
      which catches my breath
      and turns my head

  5. I had some words floating around in my head, Carrie, along with some emotions that needed sorting, so thanks for the inspiration to get them out. I'll be by tomorrow to read and visit.

  7. This pic brought back all the painful images of spending last month with my mother. She is 70 and watching her struggling to make sense of the world around her, broke my heart. I don't know how to deal with this as my post today is just a helpless rant!
