Prompt: Familiarity drugs thought, and begins to blur instinct.
(Piece must be in multiples of 50 words – maximum of 250)
Familiarity, as drug…
That’s rich, perfect
Solves mystery, satisfies
Seemed apparent that
Mom didn’t think, didn’t
Particularly observe; or
Perhaps neglected effort
To process what was daily
Before her eyes, ears
Her children…and translate into
Thought, that which required
Responsive words, actions…
Maternal instinct blurred, evaporated.
