Somewhere inside the synthetic allure,
windy silence and beastly enticement ,
there is an organic heart
that beats very fast,
like an encrypted tremor,
to convince dead ears
of a vigilant life beneath lifelessness.
Exactly 33 words for Trifecta Challenge , this week.
“Thirty years ago, Roald Dahl published the book Dirty Beasts, a collection of poems for children about weird and wonderful animals. The last poem, however, is called The Tummy Beast about a boy who thinks there’s someone living in his belly. Your Trifextra challenge is to write 33 words on a beast in an unusual place. No swamps or forests or caves, we really want you to take your beast out of its comfort zone.”
