(Hour 20) 17.30pm-18.30pm. PROMPT, genre: “ekphrasis”

fable of a fairy tale

One of Aesop’s foxes ; Ted, Goldilocks’ Papa Bear ;
& Little Red stirring it through Soviet 60’s suburbia
in the strident bright sunshine.

Cinderella has run away to the city (again)
& they want to bring her home (again)
even though they know, she won’t want to go

they’re not sure what the moral here is
or what archetype they each need to portray
but they know it will all resolve itself

in the end it usually does : these three
characters on a mission in the suburban sun
