Is this all you’ve got?
You contemplate renegade eyes,
behind frosty veil–
lost reality rising.
3. By the Rules
They filled the bill.
Paid the bill.
Dared nothing more.
Desire’s frozen wasteland.
Be comfortable companions,
respecting armored egos,
playing sex safe.
Break through faux love’s cliched embrace,
icebound style guide’s five-fingered vice.
5. Dipping the Pen
Tongues slicing attached strings,
bodies cursive strokes,
free-falling into linen winterscape.
Burn through block like a torch.
Untamed, teeth bared,
Be my spring.
***Because I’ve been battling brain freeze this week. Because there’s nothing that gets my juices flowing like a bunch of rules to bend as far as I can without breaking. Because I wanted to make something new out of something old. I took a shot at symmetrina– another bent rule because it’s a flash fiction form, not poetry. And symmetrina haz got rulez: it has to be written to a rising and falling incremental word count, the incremental number has to appear in the story, specific rules dictate which POV gets used in each section, and it all has to hang together as a story. Titles don’t count in the word counts.
A good explanation can be found here if you’re interested, or feeling desperate 🙂
