He could not abide the woman
And her squawking, huge and urgent need, for long.
Quietly he took off, left.
Inner blankness all he wanted.
Sensation of quiescence,
Blanket of relief.
Trifecta Challenge : This weekend it’s another word game – seeing what can be done with a particular word bank. From the 33rd page of
Elizabeth Strout’s Olive Kitteridge, scour the page, choose 33 words and reshape them into a piece of your own.
This is so much harder than it looks. And that was a great book, by the way. Happy Weekend.
