The Real Thing

Poetic Asides – Poem-A-Day challenge – Day 16 prompt:

Oh yeah, the prompt for the day. Well, it's something I'm calling the "Alfred Hitchcock" poem, because I want you to write a poem that has a twist near the end. For instance, write a poem about talking to your best friend and then let us know at the end that your best friend is actually a sock puppet on your left hand--maybe even add to the intrigue by making your arch nemesis your right hand.



icy cold
liquid
bubbles
fizzing
behind
a barrier
delicious
refreshment
cool to the touch
making my mouth
water in anticipation
a late afternoon pick
me up just out of my
reach a red and white
strip of bright color
and four letters on
the clear obstacle
between me and
quenched thirst
if I can just
decipher this
cryptic clue
“twist to open”
