Twiglet #126


A twiglet is a short phrase. Or a word. Its aim is to “prompt” a flow. A thought. A memory. If something comes to mind, write. A polished piece isn’t the goal; creativity is. Leave a link, if you’d like your work read, but comments should not be expected. Twiglets are posted on Tuesdays.

  1. Bootblack ice –
    Winter stares
    with slip and slide eyes

    That know cold
    from Shineola,
    from soot and insomnia

    Wind scours
    to a midnight polish –
    mirror of the macadam

    1. Feh! I was rushed, too many ideas and words. Revised, hopefully better…

      Bootblack ice –
      Winter stares

      with slip & slide eyes
      that know cold

      from Shineola,
      how wind and sleet

      spit polish
      the macadam

      1. Black ice on roads is never fun. Had to look up that polish brand. I wonder if my grandfather who was a sheriff used it?
        Shineola (polish)…entered the American lexicon in the phrase, “You don’t know shit from Shinola,” meaning to be ignorant. I might have heard that praise once or twice.
