DOGSITTER
by April Halprin Wayland

Our dogsitter knows
just enough
to wonder
why
the dog
looks
so
guilty.

Poetry Prompt: ¬†Our student dogsitter took an adorable photo of Eli stretched out, asleep on our living room couch. ¬†It was adorable…except that Eli’s not allowed on that couch. ¬†And he knows it. She didn’t. ¬†I changed the story in the words above, but my intent was to paint a picture in as few words as possible. ¬†I admire so many of ¬†Valerie Worth‘s Small Poems–a whole world in a few words.

It’s your turn.¬†Can give your readers a complete picture in just a few words? ¬†Try.
