I’ve been reading Kyle Vaughn’s Lightning Paths and completing the writing exercises daily. Today’s prompt is to write a poetry triathlon – a poem in 3 sections : writing after 1) running while your heartbeat is fast; 2) toying with a machine or mechanism; and 3) in the presence of water.

No Triathl

broken ankle folks
can't run - we can barely limp
our way place to place

we fight with the boot
velcro-twisted air pumped socks 
cold toes in winter

warmth of epsom salts
soothing  achy ankle pain
please put my bath on

Made with Padlet
