Write the story of a scar (Prompt) 4 minutes to write

My right hand

    blistered from the hot oven
    cast iron without a mitt
    and my response was
                        too quick
 
   the response to retract
                       fast, fast

   brought a new clash

   the upper oven rack
   a grid of equally
   hot., it's track
   
   an imprint

   on my hand

   forever

this scar doesn't
   bring remembrance

   of learning
   of pain 
   of hot

   only that for healing
   my hand
      oozes
           and weeps
