Prompt: One bright yellow rubber duck floats down the small creek that runs along the bike path near your home. You think nothing of it as you pedal your bike ... until .... write what happens next.

I cycled into a field
of yellow ducks, with

bright red beaks that
blurred before my eyes,

a molten smudge of
plastic, with acrid

fumes that stung
my nostrils. Even

before I woke I
knew she'd blame

it on the trauma of
an unhappy childhood.
