rain dance

She will
not stop
dancing in the rain.

Not even acid rain
can rust her iron will.
She’ll stop

a moment, stop
to stare down the rain.
The rain will bend its will.

She will dance since she can stop the rain.


Who’ll stop the rain?
This is the second installment in my spontaneous series on how NOT to write a winning gargleblaster. I’ve used the ultimate question within my 42-word response. Of course, I was trying my hand (again) and writing a tritina using the words will, stop and rain.
If you can come up with your own answer in exactly 42 words, submit your microstory to the yeah write challenge on Wednesday. Don’t add any footnotes like this. It will count against your word total.
