Sufferer of severe wanderlust, owner of freckles, lover of rain and rock music.

These are two separate pieces, I just didn't want to post them twice, especially since I already responded to the prompt directly. I would really appreciate any reviews or comments on which is stronger, and how to make them better! Even more so for my last piece, for this prompt too. Thanks so much in advance!

More Extraordinary in the Ordinary

November 19, 2018


trapped reflecting light in the vision
from in the ground; small fragments of precious stone, value of emotion now gone
cracks lead narrow winding lives
along the yellow-black paint, mirrored colours with littered cigarettes
fallen still smoking put out by busy people trampling along
salt water dripping from lost eyes mixed with rain
dust gathering glasses broken
trapped in the sidewalk
living on the downside yet seeing only the sky


pages bleed ink
in black
peeling slickly together
into the spine
onto my fingers like stamps like charcoal
the pages shine white like iron hot
until eyes focus
from where they followed mind and thought
into a world next to ours the one beneath the cover
These are another two pieces for the prompt Extraordinary in the Ordinary, which I already wrote a piece for!
