Object


the back of his hand wasn’t soft
the color of the bruise was yellow
the time for leaving had left

  2. Hi Ralph,

    Thanks for the comment. This was the product of the prompt: object. I was trying to capture the fact that the woman was just an object to him and that she couldn't/wouldn't object. And yes, all is much better than the sound of this poem!
