Prompt: Write a poem of any length incorporating every word from your latest Facebook status.
My Facebook status: “Sniff books like perfumes and wear books like hats upon your crazy heads.”
She leaves early in the morning
with the scent of tired perfume
while I stay at home,
chewing books and binding
she comes back, wide eyed
saying, “You’ve gone crazy!”
“But I like it! It’s fun!” I bark back
and she sighs.
Then buys books to replace the pile.
More the merrier I should think.
She leaves the next morning
wearing a tired hat upon her head
while I stay at home
chewing books and bindings
But these new ones hurt my teeth,
fighting wear and tear
I don’t like this anymore…
When’s she coming home?
I tried to capture a dog’s point of view, one that likes to mess about with books 🙂
