Writing 101: Be Brief (BU Day 005)

Prompt: You stumble upon a random letter on the path. You read it. It affects you deeply, and you wish it could be returned to the person to which it’s addressed. Write a story about this encounter. Today’s twist: Approach this post in as few words as possible.

While sitting on the porcelain throne,

An empty toilet paper roll crept towards my foot.

Upon it, in scratches indented into the cardboard,

“Tissue?”

Awkwardly, I tore off a handful of squares from the dispenser near me,

Stuffed them inside the empty roll,

And nudged it back across the floor.
