Poetry by award-winning novelist Elyse Singleton for Sunday’s Share

DEMON by Elyse Singleton

Resentment is a fickle, blind demon cat
sent out to hunt the enemy
only to return with your hours and years
clinched in its razor, ravenous teeth.

 

SPEAK by Elyse Singleton
Please speak in non-toxic tongues
that deliver life-anchoring streams
of praise, erudition, curiosity,
insight,  and generosity.
After all, you’re the one who hears it
first.
