Day 3: Taste of Metal

Metal

The taste of metal

When I had braces at ten
Hard to speak, felt awkward

My wedding ring didn’t fit anymore
Since I was pregnant with HRH the son
I put it in the chain close to my heart

The taste of metal

Under the moon, we dance
The stars around us twinkle

Ice from the sky
Dents in our car

When I bit my tongue
Someone’s talking about me
Shadows following me*
