Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “directions.” Find a household cleaner/bottle of shampoo/something in the freezer/anything you can find with instructions on it, then copy down a single direction (just one) on how to use/cook/etc. your chosen thing, and make it the first line or word of your post. Then keep writing whatever comes out. Have fun!


The first line is from the bottle of Instant Cuticle Remover.

Wash away excess immediately
Don’t soak in the misery
For it only multiplies
To infect you deeply
Bathe in running waters
To carry away the dirt
Clean the soul from debris
Shrapnel from shattering
Splinters of the heart
That absorbs the energy
Of the broken spirits
And offers no defence
For it is weakened
By a greedy world
But let it be different
Allow it to give
Love and caring
No matter the reception
