Trifextra: Avarice

rough sea

Avarice

I am coming into my own. Feeding on the apathy that crashes on these shores. Plucking pearls of greed and vanity from the waves of human suffering.

Soon I will be king.

—————————————————————————————

This is my submission for this weekend’s Trifextra, in which we were given the following challenge:

Buddhist cosmology tells of Trāyastriṃśa, or the Heaven of Thirty-Three gods, which rule over the human realm.  This weekend we’re asking for exactly 33 of your own words about a god of your own devising that shares heaven with the other thirty-two gods.  Make it yours and have fun with it.

And if you’re looking for more writing challenges, be sure to check out the Speakeasy. New prompts go up every Sunday and we’d love to see you there!
