Bit-ter

The taste of a pill

dis-solving in-side your mouth,

granules coat-ing tongue.

Bit-ter.

 

The sound of a hound

shriek-ing for food bel-ow,

ask-ing for just a taste.

Bit-ter.

 

The smell of a trash can

you recently empt-ied,

stink ling-ering with-in.

Bit-ter. 

 

The sight and even thought

of you com-ing to mind;

that’s what I call

bit-ter.
