Today’s prompt from my writer’s group “Forget everything” prompted this… assisted – ably – by three cups of coffee.
The Deceptively Simple
Forget everything you’ll never know about
And oil futures.
What constitutes prime.
Leave string theory
For the committed.
Focus on the knowables
One at a time. Small bites.
Start with the deceptively simple.
How to Talk to a Small Child at a Party.
Just like you would anyone else.
No special voices. They hate that.
No crouching down like you’re best friends.
Share casual observations.
Recommend the artichoke dip.
Do it right.
She’ll end up beside you on the couch
Asking your name
And your opinion of the latest Star Wars.
