Today at Real Toads, the micro-poetry challenge from Kerry is to write a poem inspired by the Instagram “inktober” challenge of the day, which is “breakable”. She’s also challenged us to go back to the old school method of writing on paper.  That part was easy because I always start on paper.  I did however try to create a worthy paper version to be shared instead of my scribbles and arrows that make it impossible to read.

the unbreakable bond
of mother and son
tattered and shattered
left lying upon the floor–
so much unwanted detritus
just to be swept away

no possible way to repair
what cannot be broken,
shocking and rocking
my world’s stability–
relationship’s stinking corpse
an albatross to bear
