For NaPoWriMo Day 13 the Prompt is: ” to write a poem in which the words or meaning of a familiar phrase get up-ended. For example, if you chose the phrase “A stitch in time saves nine,” you might reverse that into something like: ‘ a broken thread; I’m late, so many lost.'” Also, I’m combining with Sonya from Only 100 Words’ #3LineTales Prompt.

Romeo scales yellowed bricks,
Hands bleed from his grip;
He pleads, balances on shutters.
Juliet grins glances down,
She notes a height steep;
He clings to her hand squeezes.
A climbing shoe slips, tumbling —
Love doesn’t conquer —
Death; not as corpses hands’ meld.
