The burn

My throat burned after saying it.
I gargled with warm salt water and tried to feel better.
Perhaps a mint might cool my throat down I thought, but it didn’t help.
Then, I drank cool water to calm the fire in my throat.
The next day, my throat ached from the burn.
But I am glad I said it.
I love where I come from, even though it is a fixer-upper.

  1. Hi Marilyn , this one is publishable. Send it in with three others to Rattle magazine. You don’t have to enter the contest which costs money. Just send them in regular. Good going. Uncle Jim
