Button Push

Teeth grinding on
son of a bitch bones
I think surely my investment
in chapters will not see
my reason for bookmarks die.

Dear Author,

You knew which buttons to push.
I will thank you when the steam dissipates.

Sincerely,

Couldn’t Put It Down

Your poem made me think of all of the arguments I've had in my mirror with characters from books. Very clever poem.

I often have "conversations" with authors - usually when they have p***ed me off!

Here here, or is it "hear, hear"? I can never remember. (One of the many things I can't remember any more. Sigh.)
Good work, Susie.
Luv, K
