“Open Wound” Poem of the Day (2023)

“Open Wound”

By Ashley O’Hare

This wound has been open

for far too long.

It never gets worse.

It never scars.

The pain is the same

day after day.
Sunshine or rain,

the agony remains.

I have tried the best medicines-

the tried and true traditions-

nothing seems to faze

this aching exhibition.
