Hello dear reader
Today I wrote a poem called a Quadrille. If you are new to Quadrille the rules are easy. Write a poem of exactly 44 words. That's it. Today's prompt also asks us to incorporate the word 'curl'. So, my word count is right and I used the word. And I am not sorry. Please enjoy.

The very idea
of someone touching my feet
makes my toes curl.
And not in a good way.
Go ahead and try,
but only if
you want to get kicked.
I cannot be responsible
for a bruise I may inflict.
I am not sorry.
Yes... it's more than being ticklish... but I do remember Chinese foot-massage, and actually enjoyed...ReplyDelete
I know that feeling!ReplyDelete
My feet are ticklish also.ReplyDelete
Only if its for massage..he..he...ReplyDelete
Kind of like when you hit the center of the knee and your leg bops up involuntarily. It's the deliberate hits to be wary of.ReplyDelete
Well, they can't say they weren't warned ;-)ReplyDelete
That is a nice take on the prompt!!ReplyDelete
Hahaha! I share your sentiments. XDReplyDelete
Haha - fair warning!ReplyDelete
I love this. Never apologize for causing bruises when someone's clearly been asking for it.ReplyDelete
Haha. Like this take on the prompt.ReplyDelete
Ha, don't share the distaste but you have a right to your reaction.ReplyDelete
It's a ticklish subject, but i wouldn't. You have the right to feeted freedomReplyDelete
Thank you for a poem I can understand. Not full of flowery words and images -- all cloaked in vagueness. Wheeeewww, that was refreshing. I could use a kick.ReplyDelete
Ha! I love a good foot massage myself, but your piece made me grin.ReplyDelete
Heehee. This made me smile.ReplyDelete
I can relate to this! A very interesting poem!ReplyDelete
This made me grin ... and how!! Excellent write :DReplyDelete
I once had a Thai foot massage, and I can't say that I enjoyed it.ReplyDelete
A fun poem... with no apologies!ReplyDelete
To the point. No touching or be kicked. Fair enough.ReplyDelete
