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!
