Day 16: Which of the five senses do you ignore in your writing? Write a poem that includes strong use of that sense.
I clasp the clammy pole so many have touched
— and will touch.
Instantly I want to feel my face,
put my fingers in my mouth,
rub my eyes repeatedly.
I don’t, but still grip the smooth, shiny silver,
my heart in my throat,
waiting anxiously until I can wash my hands.
