A twiglet’s aim is to “prompt” a thought. 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.

    Before she
    married she flew
    to Boston
    to see a past-
    tense lover.

    She knew he retained
    nothing of her–
    gold-filled pen
    spare car
    key–
    still:
    retracing
    steps and reclaiming

    anything
    she might be lost without
    someday seemed
    not appropriate
    or right,
    an expensive waste
    of a weekend

    just to pick across
    a New Year’s
    Morning room
    to the last glass
    she drank from.

    To know
    if it was flat,
    strong enough
    to change a mind,
    or if it could
    wait, sleepy yes,

    was necessary.
