Today’s prompt challenges us “to channel your inner gumshoe, and write a poem in which you describe something with a hard-boiled simile. Feel free to use just one, or try to go for broke and stuff your poem with similes till it’s . . . as dense as bread baked by a plumber, as round as the eyes of a girl who wants you to think she’s never heard such language, and as easy to miss as a brass band in a cathedral.” (Full NaPoWriMo post available here.)
Back from the longest trip and scrambling my brain to come up with hard-boiled similes. The billy goats is the best I could do. Not sure I have an inner gumshoe to channel, but if it matters, I used the title of a legal drama I absolutely adore as my title.
PS–The posted draft has expired, but here are some more photos from Prague, taken this April (2022).
