almost criminal

the word today is liminal
a word that’s almost criminal
that borders on the threshold
doorway-981803__480without coming in or going
unfit for conversation
without awkward hesitation
you wouldn’t say it to a friend
at least not one worth knowing
it has no trace of poetry
it paints a picture woefully
it shouldn’t be in greeting cards
it shouldn’t be in letters
it lingers on the precipice
it is, today, my nemesis
let’s pool our hopes together
that tomorrow’s word is better
