more from collaborative manifesto remix (with ching-in chen)

Hi folks — Been posting almost every day onto Ching-In Chen’s collaborative manifesto, which you can link to here:

Wanted to share this next writing because I love the damn prompt so much! hahahaha.

Katagiri found a giant frog waiting for him in his apartment. […]“Call me ‘Frog,’” said the frog in a clear, strong voice.—Haruki Murakami (via Melissa Sipin)

city block treachery, she cranks up the walk, pocketing a fiver, feeling good, feeling high. resisting the urge for pancakes at midnight, artificial strawberries on her mind, she whistles a tra
la la la
song of spite, kissing elbows knees wrists, she remembers, honest women love harder. swinging twice around the seabird shitted lamp post, she’s got a mouthful of song to share. where have you gone, my love?
the night accompaniment has taken the day off
when her sore neck hits the pillow, she considers the music from the frog inside the toilet bowl.

Prompt:

As soon as you opened your mouth
And I heard your soft
Sounds,

I knew we would be
Friends.

The first time, dear pilgrim, I heard
You laugh,

I knew it would not take me long
To turn you back into
God.

-Hafiz, translated by Daniel Ladinsky
