Written for: Miz Quickly - Day 28
"There are questions that are never answered to anyone’s satisfaction."
Why is the sky blue?
Which came first, the chicken or the egg?
How can you (eat, do, ask, believe, etc) that?
Why did the chicken cross the road?
What’s with chickens, anyway?
Have you been drinking?
Why can’t I have a dog?
Why does God always tell people he is theirs and theirs alone?
and the infamous
Do you love me?
"These are, of course, only a scant and jaundiced sampling of the eternal questions.
You probably have your own.
Write, answering an unanswerable question. If the question is compact enough, you might use it as the title, then write about something else, leaving everyone who reads it scratching their heads and saying: What was that about?"
You fumble with
the kitchen. Eyes
are red-ringed glass.
Cheeks are Santa-rosy.
Scent of whiskey
permeates your coat,
wafting through rest
of the house. Your wife
asks, Have you been drinking?
You look at her with incredulity.
No answer required.
