A Hot Mess Exposing

A spectacle for those who wonder

I missed the recent #MMP battle but felt inspired by the prompt: “Hot Mess.”

Declare yourself, and make it messy.
Like a sweet syrup–sticky at the edge of your mouth —
words form and tumble out,
giving shape to thoughts that lay dormant for years —
pinned beneath conformity’s wreckage of socially acquired fear.
