Eye for an Eye


My mind’s or the law’s?
The storm and the beholder.
Feast for or on them?

Keep yours open. 
As far as they can see. 
More than meets.

In the sky, a flash or pie.
Bird’s. bull’s. apple’s.
Bigger than your stomach.

Keep peeling. Open. No, closed.
Roving. Candy. Goo-goo.
Easy on. Life passes. Up to them. 
Popper. Twinkle. Starry.

Black. Bloodshot. Sore. Four.
Crying them out. 
Stink. Batting. Shut. Blink.

Dust in them,
Their wounding glint.
Wasn't a dry one.

The ball, 
the wool. 

Look me in them. 
Can’t take them off. 
I only have them.

For you.


You know how you get an idea stuck in your head and you can not, for the life of you, shake it out? Ever since I saw this prompt over at Thin Spiral Notebook, my mind started whirling with all the clichés I could think of including this word. It could not be helped or stopped.

Using “eyes” for inspiration, write 100 Words – 100 exactly – no more, no less. You can either use the word – or any form of the word – as one of your 100, or it can be implied. Include a link in your post back here, and add your story to the Mister Linky list. If you don’t have a blog, you can leave your submission in the comment section, or as a Facebook status post. Remember to keep spreading the love with supportive comments for your fellow Wordsters.

Thanks so much, Kelly. It was a fun one to do. Quirky, but there you have it.
