Wallflower Row

Photo by Margaret Bednar

The Rapture came
and emptied Wallflower Row.
Wouldn't you know
I almost missed it?
I was slow grinding a boy
and enjoying myself,
when, all of a sudden,
nobody interesting was gone.

For the picture prompt at Real Toads

Need a Daphne fix?  A new column is up!

Wallflower row that's too funny. Great write from this prompt, I probably would've gone school on this too, but for sure it wouldn't have been done this cool. Love the opening as the rapture, can go so many directions from there- excellent write. Thanks

LOL ... you crack me up. You sure have a way of slam-cramming meaning and bite into every single word.

Although, I do hope I will be raptured AND that I am interesting. I do not consider myself a wallflower, however. But I am introspective and quiet at times. Some find mysterious to be the most interesting.

"all of a sudden,
nobody interesting was gone"

So good!

A hoot, MZ -- as m'boy Keith Richards sd., nothing interesting happens where the light is too bright. Ergo, it's a good idea to be dryhumping darkness when Gabriel starts honking on his big kazoo. - Brendan
