30-Day Poetry Challenge: Day 29

Day 29: Malapropos of what? – A malapropism is the use of an incorrect word in place of a word with a similar sound/appearance. For instance, “candy stripper” instead of “candy striper,” or “optical conclusion” instead of “optical illusion.” Take one of the poems you’ve already written for the #30dpc and replace some of your words with words that sound or look similar, but have different meanings.

All the meth in the world
wouldn’t calm the reserves 
that are pooled rot 
in me.
