the mouth lines; the lines mouth
#1.1 Generative: Kiss Off...
Fill a glass or cup with beverage of choice. Cover lips with lipstick, balm, stain, or fruit. Place a sheet of paper and a pen on the table. Inhale an intention or question. Exhale clear the space.
Drink from the glass. Leave a mark. Free-write a line with each sip - automatic - whatever comes to/through/of/from the lips and presses/ spills /pours /curls /wraps /drops /spits forth. Continue to drink and fill and sip and write until the lip smeared lines disappear. Until you erase the ring around, write. This may take minutes, hours, days, beverages, pages, pens - perhaps, there will be germs [maybe, germination]. The writing is not clean. The mouth lines; the lines mouth.
Read through the text. Keep the lines that stick; kiss off the rest.
Feeling generous?!? If you are in the sharing mood, please, submit the writing generated from this exercise to Precipice-Collective for inclusion in our anthology - Precipice: Writing at the Edge. In addition to critical essays and creative works, the anthology will include writing prompts, and hopefully, with your contributions, writing samples from our online community.
