Calisthenics (Week 14)

Collection of things that go together

He was...

the drumstick to my snare drum
the scaffold to my under-constructed building
the comb to my nappy roots
the shower to my cap
the flower to my pot
the paint to my brush
the mouth to my wash
the smell to my new car
the lift to my face
the moth to my flame
the salt to my watermelon
the crunchy peanut butter to my grape jelly
the cheese to my wine
the bread to my butter.

  1. This is a lovely little exercise you have going here, Atarah. You have some neat little unusual combinations here. I would never have thought of “the lift to my face,” “the mouth to my wash,” or “the scaffold to my under-constructed building.” All lovely, unusual little sentiments. I could see a fantastic draft coming out of this piece—all you have to do is expand it a bit, and focus it on something specific, and I think all systems are go. Great job, and keep working!
