The Poetry Question

Discovering the Relevance of Words

The Daily Prompt – June 11 – Belly Up To The Bar


1. Use the prompt in the way it’s intended (starting a sentence, the title of the piece, theme, etc)

2. You may write in any format you see fit (fiction, non-fiction, poem, song, script, etc.)

3. Post your piece of writing in the comments section of the website to be considered for the ‘Best Of’ section.

The Prompt: 

You’re seated, two sheets to the wind at the bar of your favorite watering hole, and you see your dream girl across the room, chatting it up with some loser. She seems really into him, but in your drunken state, you know you’re better. What do you do?

**obviously the gender can be swapped if needed**

    I stumble to her feet like a puppy dog on catnip, like her toes and say your not the toilet.
