A Nip of Inspiration from The Girl Who Left You

excerpted from the poem, Camouflage:

… Tucked against your chest, it took hours
for me to fall asleep, so afraid
I would wake in flames
or as ash in a blue dish at your feet.

Hush, you whispered
like a shepherd to his flock
on a full-moon night.

Or the wolf, under his breath, who answers
I’m here. I’m here.

Now go write! We look forward to reading your entries!

Bottoms up,

Julie & SFS Crew
