Diary Entry 5:


January 26th: Inspired by ‘Frustrated’ by Annie Preece.


Emotions are like
wax on wood chips

they’re drips
on gilded lilies

and Achilles
as a glass-eyed
Patroclus look into
and through him.

Rejection hurts like a ballpoint bee sting
which is why I bring
my stick of stories
to the pain that sings of honey.

-A. Struthers
