The 99 Word Tribe By Bridget Lowe




Judy Underwood, Chasing Rainbow


Thursday Flash Fiction Week 28: Innocence and Dreams



World, i honor you
after everything
we've been through.
.
I honor you and take you with me
up the mountainside
where we will live
in wonderment.
.
I take you to the desert
where we shrivel like worms
and become tongues
for other people to kiss with.
.
World, there are two baskets
on my back,
Fill them, fill them with fruits
and more fruits.
.
Or fill them with whatever
is customary
but tell me it is fruit, Call it something good.
.
World, some has satisfied their thing
But I'm the crying-out animal
who can see in the dark!
Forgive me!
