Minty Fresh

Poetry Challenge Day 151 (Fri Mar 4)

The Cortisone Cream and the Colgate
sit next to each other on the bathroom counter.
I sometimes look at them and think
“that could be a problem.”
Of course I’m way to smart
to make that mistake.
So I leave them there, intentionally,
as a sort of test, IQ test as it were,
or maybe better, an “awareness” test.
I did pretty well for awhile,
until this morning.
The rash on my hand is now minty fresh
and my teeth are feeling slightly numb.
