I am participating in the March Slice of Life Challenge: A slice a day for all of March. You should do it too! Thank you, Two Writing Teachers! Readers, check out their site, and start slicing!
I'm sure there's a poet's way to write when your cat is dying as the children head to school and your daughter texts you: "Mommy help us" There must be a metaphor for when you're too late he's already dead and your son begs you to say "passed on" instead I wish I could speak in allegory when my daughter lies in bed and says, "Tell me something good, mama. I need to hear something good." The words keep repeating a mantra a poem Tell me something good, mama I need to hear something good Tell me something good, mama I need to hear something good
