Fortunes (for NaPoWriMo, Day 21)

That dress looks lovely on you.
If you don’t wear dresses, you really should.
Don’t trust the person to your immediate left.

You once cried when your favorite Super Ball fell down the storm drain.

Don’t pretend you’ve never cried.
We each have our portion of sorrow.

Think about your future.
Forget everything you ever knew.
No one gets out of here alive.



NaPoWriMo, Day 21 prompt: Write a poem in the form of fortune cookie messages, like this one.

  1. Hi Marilyn, I think I couldn’t quite grasp “Don’t trust the person to your immediate left” :-/
    Thank you so much for your encouraging words… and a word of caution, don’t think of taking panipuri much, you can get a diarrhoea :-))

    • Hi, Anunoy: “Immediate” in this phrase means “right next to.” So, “Don’t trust the person sitting right next to you, on your left.” And thanks for the tip … Maybe I’d just get one? 🙂
