Wild Child




He grew great
ire when his
plan did back-
fire, a chortle/
churtle engine
fire enough
to taste smoke
for a little bit-a
while; embarrass-
ment to drive him
wild, in the woods
a hideout knot; a
knock a mile wide
his hurt pride.

Prompt inspiration: 3WW~ backfire, embarrass, taste

Wild child, indeed.

Loved the cascade of the form, and it read as though the thoughts were tumbling out, with all the impatience of the subject. Great write, Laurie! Amy
