5 June: Is This Tragedy

Is This Tragedy

She’s at this land’s edge
looking into machete-sharp light.
He’s leaving.
He’s burning it all down.

His ship sails out of her echoes
into a taunting sea.
Her heart leaks music.
She watches land’s end.

  2. Beautiful, sharp light and the leaking song ties this together perfectly for me. And the questioning title. Victory and tragedy are not easy to discern anymore. What a thought-provoking piece of brevity. Thank you for writing to this prompt with me. Magical, this one.

      1. It’s been random so far, but I’m find Tuesdays that I’m super tired from multiple classes. Brevity is about the perfect portion those days. 😂🪶💜
