Written for: Poetic Asides #491
“For today’s prompt, write an anecdote poem. An anecdote is a short, often interesting, story about a real incident or person. Like I might write a poem about something someone said or did at the post office when I went to buy stamps, or maybe something amusing happened at the grocery store.”
I could not pretend it was not me
embarrassed, flushed to top of my face.
Used porta-potty for badly needed pee.
Set my camera down where it would be safe
I thought. Into the blue depths it slid.
There was no way for me to fish it out.
Mortified, I reported what I just did.
Camera, rescued, gushed blue like a dead trout.
