It’s a thin line between heartbreak and laughter…
The Sunday Whirl blog invites writers to write a poem or short prose using some or all of the “wordle’s” 12 word.
Listen, it’s a thin line
Between laughter and crying.
One side is as harrowing and transparent
As the other is ironic and complex.
I laugh as much as I can;
I borrow from the left, and guess at the right.
Either it works or it doesn’t,
But it’s rare I won’t try
This is the saw that I live by,
Grubs that I lustily eat,
The marching marrow of my bones,
The truest oath I daily renew.
