HOLD ON TIGHTLY:TRIFEXTRA #80 TOOTH


This weeks Trifextra goes a lil’ something like:

“Full disclosure: we’re going a bit weird on you with this weekend’s short prompt.  Trifecta editor Lisa has a son who just lost his first tooth.  In honor of such a creepy event, we want you to write a 33-word response that uses the word tooth.  Your response can use any definition of the word but cannot tell the story of someone losing a tooth.  (Because we just told that story, and it was pretty boring the first time.)”

This is an incredibly fun, challenging challenge …It’s only 33 word..so take on my challenge…challenging the 33 inside you.

JOIN IN THE TRIFECTA/TRIFEXTRA FUN

Here are my 33:

Hold on Tightly:

Awakened by sweaty screams.

recalling  tearing flesh of dreams.

Gasping, right hand grasping

the tooth,

hanging from a neck chain

His left, feeling  ripped flesh of his chest

as he writhed in pain.
