NaPoWriMo: Day 6

 

 

Deluge

 

Found boneless,teal
It used to be

My mother, feet against the fence
My body swallowed the downpour

 

This found poem was made from a 100 word flash fiction I wrote a few months ago. I was inspired by a photo prompt of a goat, and for the style and atmosphere I took my cues from the brilliant Karen Russell, whose short story collection, Vampires in the Lemon Grove, I was reading at the time.
