|Venus de Milo with Drawers, 1936, Salvador Dali|
At the age of twelve
I was instructed to wash my hands
when I got up in case
I'd touched myself in my sleep.
Curious at what I should be doing
but wasn't doing
I touched myself
here, here, and here.
Nobody else knows what they did
with my arms
but I can't touch myself
The writing prompt comes to us from Magpie Tales,
A blog dedicated to writers and poets for the purpose of honing their craft. I hope you enjoyed my Magpie Tale. The Venus de Milo has always mystified me.
