Daily Poem 17: Recidivism

I saw red gerberas, and as always

I suffered from recidivism; slid

Down, down a snake of board games on the lawn

And kisses in the creek and freezing nights

On an old cot beneath the twisting stars.

re·cid·i·vism

[ri-siduh-viz-uhm]

–noun
1.  repeated or habitual relapse, as into crime.
