Boot Camp June Flash Blast.
Prompt Set 024
Tuesday June 10th, 15:39
The prick, the foot, the ear, which the silliest?
I suspect you will begin without me
We are taller now, older
Laugh lightly, lick your red lips and smile
Blame others, confess to nothing!
It was easter Monday. I went for a walk
Kids playing on ice, listening for the exultant crack
Sail calmly away
The streets are bright, the homeless up on spikes
The woman who pissed herself in Tescos
We stay together like tangled earphones, string
So this is your idea of "safe"?
We are too tired to despair; we sleep through protests
Our enemies have poisoned the well of bright ideas
Perhaps we are happier
There are yellow windows, glowing in the hills
Who we remember, why, is not a hierarchy of the good
Leave now, stranger
What will endure is accident
The banished beggars made to glue
I arrive within your pregnant conversation
Before this one there was another one
Between infatuation and dissatisfaction are our moments
Love's a Bitch and then you die.
We are surrounded, and running out of epithets
