“Backwards” :: A Story in 7 Lines

This week for Mama Kat’s Writing Workshop, one of the prompts is (#1) Write a blog post in exactly 7 lines.  Clearly, with my affinity for poems lately, I chose to partake in this week’s workshop.  I hope that you like it! :)

ps. due to my blog format, poem appears as more than 7 lines. lol.

I’m beginning to think that the world is on backwards
like a worn-in t-shirt pulled on too fast.
We’re so busy showing off our prom dresses, suits and ties
that we forget how we are most lovable in our woven button downs and faded underwear.
I want to try you on for size, grass-stain your white, pressed shirt.
Remind you how your eyes sparkle the most when you’re covered in mud
never needing to be washed.
