Chris from Enchanted Oak has stirred the pot and these words surfaced: laugh laundry ghost edges beer. She told us to write a poem using those five words. It brought to mind an incident from my college days. Go here to see how other folks respond to the prompt.
I remember that night
On the edges of my memory
Laundry would have been safer
But since when does nineteen
Do the safe thing?
I can still hear your laugh
Cynical and you warned
Me that you were a little bit drunk
You kissed me in the back seat
With an apology, but I said I didn’t mind.
It was the first time that I tasted beer.
