A family of five
With only four chairs
Each night, we’d assume our rightful places;
Like musical triplets, played over two beats;
And I, sandwiched in by two siblings,
Bridged the treacherous gap.
The challenge: This weekend we are giving you three variations on a prompt. We need you to give us 33 words back, and 2 of those words must be either “cheap flights,” “sandwiched in” or “spectacularly clean.” This weekend, your piece must also be non-fiction (poetry or prose). And yes, we reserve the right to call your mothers and former lovers to ask for verification on your tales. Trifextra weekend challenge…www.trifectawritingchallenge.com.
