NaHaiWriMo 2019: week 1

torn trash bag —
strewn in the street
dirty diapers

[2/1 prompt = dirty diapers]


thin walls . . .
pretending to
not hear

[2/2 prompt = thin walls]


flare!
raiding party freezes
between trench lines

[2/3 prompt = motion-activated light]


mystery meat . . .
he vows to go
vegetarian

[2/4 prompt = spam]


artificial flavors
and colors —
the psychedelic ’60s

[2/5 prompt = artificial coloring]


from snout to feet to curly tail:
pink and perfumed
for the farm fair

[2/6 prompt = pigs’ feet]


center of town —
raising the sidewalk
a gnarled tree root

[2/7 prompt = sidewalk]
