Crush; Chosen Definition: to reduce to particles by pounding or grinding .
TWC Stands for ‘Trifecta Writing Challenge‘, a website that produces two writing challenges for week, each based on a single word. Using the third definition for that word, you must write a response between 33 and 333 words including the chosen word. What you write is open between those boundaries. The responses are judged, and the top three given a mention. So here we go, my first attempt.
Like mortar on pestle
grinding sand into rock,
the embrace of manacles,
and the weight of emotions.
They bear down on us,
crush, crushing, crushed.
Naught else can reform the world as such,
opening molecule to particle to nucleoid.
No man can hold in place
to stare into the face
We know only by the ticking clock.
