I found this nifty site 50 to 1 a couple of days ago. Each submission must tell a story in 50 words or less. I have many short poems and with a little revision, was able to submit something worthy of publication on their site.
I initially wrote the poem while taking a CPR certification class required for my teaching credential. It was a long day, but I got lots of writing in.
Yesterday I spent four hours getting CPR certification at the Y. Tonight I’ll eat at a Japanese steakhouse with a distinctly American name. A man will choke on a filet mignon. I’ll use the Heimlich to save his life. His wife will thank me. And I’ll get a free meal.
