Trifextra: Pumpernickel Monster


Pumpernickel Monster

The monster in my breadbox leaves imprints on my loaves
Eight furry legs, sixteen eyes, and twenty little toes
Despite the dents, he’s welcome here
His mousing skills, they commandeer
My polyphonic prose.


This is my submission for this weekend’s Trifextra challenge, in which we had to write 33 words about a monster that lives in an unusual place.

Speaking of monsters, you should come and check out the Speakeasy creative writing challenge. We’re heading into our Halloween crescendo this week. Not only will it be lots of scary fun, but there will be prizes too!
