Not Sorry - a quadrille

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.

  1. Yes... it's more than being ticklish... but I do remember Chinese foot-massage, and actually enjoyed...

  3. 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.

  7. I love this. Never apologize for causing bruises when someone's clearly been asking for it.

  11. 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.
