This week’s prompts are at the bottom.
Practice makes perfect. Let me know what you think.
We stand nose to nose in the kitchen.
You have your voice raised; as you
go on and on about what a shit day you had.
How your boss slapped you on the ass.
I try to tell you why I think I may be fired
over problems at the McNulty account.
We’re talking over one another like we always do.
And then, Bird comes on the box. His Savoy and Dial recordings drop to the turntable
from the stack and the needle settles in with a scratch; skritch… skritch… skritch….
We’re clinging together in the middle of the kitchen.
Our feet planted firmly on the ancient linoleum
we sway gently back and forth.
Your arms wrap around my shoulders,
my arms go ’round your waist.
When you raise your lips and nuzzle my neck
I nip your ear and breathe in the clean scent of your hair.
This week’s prompts are:
- Where the grass grows uphill
- A hole in the sky for the birds to fly through
- Written in fire
Go ahead and dive in, set your imagination free!
Ready, Set, Go – you have 25 minutes, but if that is not possible, take as long as you need and, have fun!
