Nine short poems describing my work as an author of short stories
by David Ebenbach

    Story 1
    Something
    quirky happens.

    Story 2
    The same.

    Story 3
    Ongoing routine proves to be unstable,
    when interrupted.

    Story 4
    Person thinks, and almost resolves
    internal conflict.

    Story 5
    Ba-dum ba-dum ba-dum -
    like that.

    Story 6
    Person travels,
    finds strangely named shop,
    eats somewhere,
    stands on ice.

    Story 7
    Tension builds towards crucial action;
    words solve everything.

    Story 8
    Something
    quirky happens
    to
    quirky person.

    Story 9
    Go again.
