The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “The Sincerest Form of Flattery.”


They slip around the kitchen

looking for a place to land

sliding here and there

going nowhere

or so it seems

to the reams

of paper towels

at the far end of the counter.

Will she or won’t she

not sure yet

she’s near the faucet

may get wet.

That would be sad

butterfingers and water

could turn out bad.

Will she go for the sponge

or do the right thing

and use paper towels

to pull off her ring.

(10 minute writing exercise prompt – “butterfingers”)
