Metamorphosis – Daily Prompt: Glaring


Push, and then
s l o w l y pull –

What a perfect needle
for the tool!

The prolonged art
of glaring
is all that it takes

for the other to
start unconsciously
giving me

that cold shoulder –


(No) Thanks, cockroach.
I needed that extra privacy.

I’ll spare you
the bundled newspaper
this time round,

but I won’t guarantee you
your extra life mana
the next…

  1. Thank goodness you haven’t become a giant vermin! That never ends well.
    This was a spritely piece–hope the creature learned his lesson. And it is better to let those ones goes once or twice, in case they are on a Kafka-esque life adventure 🙂
