Five of my poems are live on Five 2 One’s #thesideshow. Check them out here: http://five2onemagazine.com/
Excerpt for today:
I remember the damn dog. His name was Benji, and he cost me my ankle. Of course, he was named after the movie. That didn’t matter. What mattered was it was all his fault.
Today is all about trends. We are all guilty of falling victim to a trend or two, especially in our younger days. If nothing else, our old pictures remind us of the fashionable choices we made that we should have avoided.
For me, it has to be apple pectin perms to make my impossibly thick hair curly, which made into a human poodle. Ha, need I say more? 😉
Prompt – think back to a trend that you followed. Why did you do it? Regret it much? Embarrassed much? Or do you own it? Write about it.
Raw excerpt for the day:
My bleached hands are full of snowflakes
that bleed of chemicals.
Yet I do not stop bleaching,
even though it is 2 am,
and you cannot see the white counter tops,
nor how hard I tried to be perfect
