Home from vacating for a couple days. Free-write 100 words prompted by photo as follows (thanks to Friday Fictioneers / Madison Woods instigations/inspirations. Please join)
The trouble is corrosive. Is rank. I do not say what you think I say. I do not say what you say I say. I hear you wrong. Rot. You love taking pictures of ruins. I love the effects of rust. On iron. On rock. The meal of erosion is slow. Don’t yell. Things erase when we turn our heads. Eyes such enormous editors. My ears confuse wind with anger. What you think is running water is something else. Is sobbing. Are tears. Words are constructed of contexts. Are hints and withers. What accrues is corrosive. Is gentle. Is fierce.
