Poem. Feng Shui

Feng Shui

I looked for some loopholes
marveling how a little
convex mirror over
the front door
could drive away 
the bad chops of a 
neighbor or passerby.

I marveled at how 
a handful of rice thrown
high in the air could
cleanse and bolster my
health and peace 
of mind.

If I am at the stove
my back is to the door.
I need a mirror to see behind
or a chime hung with
ribbons in multiples of 9
to protect me while I
stir the soup.

Chi can escape down
your toliet
or sink.
So keep the bathroom 
door closed
and the seat

100 Word Story. The CUE word given was POINT

Shena was the unfortunate victim of a birth defect. Although perfect in every other way, her head came to a sharp point.

Teased at school without mercy or care for her condition, Shena would hide her deformity with a large, Afro wig or a thickly knitted, wool cap when she ventured out.

Her teen years were painful, and she had little hope of finding employment or a life partner.

Shena turned down dozens of lucrative offers to headline in sideshows, but made an excellent, sustainable, living, as she became the object of desire and devotion to thousands of Hollywood fetishists.
