PROMPT #142

“The genie is not getting back in the bottle”

Yes, the line above is your theme or prompt for the week. Twist it any way, try to push it back, experiment with formats and words, and let us see the story that emerges.

~*~

Once you’ve opened your mouth they’re all over the place

Like the leaves blown away by the wind, in all directions

Or the vapors that just dissolve into thin air

A thousand apologies cannot bring back those words

They’re like a genie out of the bottle that won’t go back in

So before you say the words do think twice

The wound inflicted by a knife would heal, not those inflicted by tongue

~*~
