Sunday Whirl – Surface

Label won: wallflower/nut
chains simmer at the surface
color stains her cheeks
like the sangria fruit punch
tongue-tied, throat mixed-up
nothing else matters, when everything’s
the matter
finally bursts.

Wordle chains, nut, matter, throat, mixed, punch, simmered, surface, burst, color, label, won
