Bits of Steak “Writing That Sizzles” Competition, Day 02

Here’s a twofer Tuesday. Prompts numbers 2 & 3. Good luck!


This is a red letter day

like your first standing piss

or learning to drive a stick shift.

Not quite as red letter as those

but worth mentioning nonetheless.


I wade into the warm pond of day

feel the moments rise on my skin

as deeper and deeper I go,

the soft mud of wasted seconds

rising between my toes

and over the top of my feet.
