Through her granite veins
circles a ghost of fear
with empty names
it howls within her flesh
giving weight to her anorexia
and her table phobia.

Through, circle, veins, granite, fear, ghost, names, howl, empty, flesh, table, weight … these are the words for Brenda’s Sunday Whirl Wordle number 201!

Mary … Oh Mary Mary Mary!
Johnnnnnnn …
