Wordle: Strap

The Sunday Whirl


The Strap

Just when you think you’ve got a handle on things
the strap breaks off. What’s done, Pilgrim, won’t un-do.
No chick can fit back in its shell. That’s how the cookie
crumbles, how the cell mutates. Vent like a pirate’s parrot,

fulminate the air blue–then put a sock in, bear it. Grin.
Even if it hurts your teeth, be ye of good cheer. Giving
in is not the same as giving up. Plug your gun in. Draw
a single line of glue along the surface that offends and

hold the mess together. Repair is an opportunity to make
the situation yours. Add more glue. Slap on some trim.

  1. Well this gave me a laugh because I can remember many years ago watching a man trying to mend the handle on a suitcase that had broken off. He was not too pleased!
