NaPoWriMo: Day 3

April 3:  Single-Legged Soldiers

Grandma’s knitting needle:  clack, clack.
Crossfade to the whirring machinations of
the marching needle,
Stepping in time with scurrying fingers.

Minty tooth-decay-preventing chewing gum chatter and
railings clanging against hangers
drown out the cyclic stamp of these single-legged soldiers.

Peeking through the hole left by a dropped stitch,
The world is not as clear.
