Zozo Writers- Coopon

Written with Carrizozo Writers



When Martha unleashed her temper
it was a whirlwind
tearing through the house
up the stairs
down again
searching relentlessly; until it found him
 
Once located; he was macerated
chewed up, bloodied, spit out on the sidewalk and stomped on
 
“I’m sorry, Martha, it slipped out,” he cowered,
“I know I should have said coo-pon
“I wasn’t thinking
“it won’t happen again.”
 
“Come here.” She reached for him
cupped his chin
looked him in the eye
“Let me take care of you
“I have a salve that’ll help”

 


Playing with pronouncing differences between ‘coupon’ and ‘coupon’
