Prompt Eight

Moving Day

– End of the month and it
is raining. The truck we booked is
late and the house, a dangerous
mess of life, packed in boxes to
trip over. So, we slow the pace, nestle together on the veranda and read
Aesop’s fables, choosing his words, over the daily newspapers.

With thanks to Margaret Atwood for her brilliant poem,
“It is Dangerous to Read Newspapers”
(this line also appears in the body of the poem)
