Please Don’t

Trifecta’s newest challenge:

MELT (transitive verb)

1:  to reduce from a solid to a liquid state usually by heat
2:  to cause to disappear or disperse

Nice words won’t melt me.

Neither will a smile.

Music, poetry,

Paintings will take a while.

Titanic? True stories?

They’re all pretty sad.

News reports

Have all that’s bad.

But what jars me,

Breaks me,

Moves –

No, shakes me,

Is the worst possibility –

A missing apostrophe.

*N.B.: For some fun, and a delicious dose of irony, check out this post’s URL. Entirely unintentional. I swear.
