2015 is special for halloween (a short story slam entry for week 31)

Short Story Slam Prompt 31: 17 days to A Spooky and Sheepish Halloween Night

so, when a desire is not met, she screams, and he falls panic,
with a friend who happens to operate air force crafts, Asya is able to
fly east, all the way cross pacific ocean, and landing in Paris, and 
after a night time train ride, she becomes very dizzy, and almost
could not speak, because of the lack of sleep, she sees the hotel Shangri-La
very sad place, and it seems like there is a hard dry pea under her bed sheet,
and she rolls back and forth, and dreaming about being chased by a few
of her childhood opponents, and her image of Paris is foreign and strange

next morning, after she takes a shower and brushes her teeth, she smiles
at a fancy breakfast bar and feels the urge to laugh without reasoning,
in life, she is not supposed to take any risk, but she feels good that she is a
person of independence and she eats some octopus, and some frog legs,
and a man with robot costume waves his hands at her, and she thinks that
mechanical thing is not a bad after all.

all nightmare have gone far distance, and she senses the momentary peace,
and stops scolding those loud chirping birds from parrot shops.
that's a story of a trip and a change of moods.

a poet to know: louise gluck

never have fun reading poetry?
try it out today,

introducing louise gluck for fun

the free verse wheels

the wheels on the bus go round and round,
the figures on a clock go tic and toc,
the fish in the pond swim far and wide,
the poets on the universe go jist and jitter

words form better
when music rings in your ears
rhyming sound brings joy
when a girl admires a smart boy
