Dark Spirit

This weekend's Trifextra challenge: write a 33-word piece about a beast in an unusual place. I've encountered this beast many, many times.


The benevolent beast in the Bacardi Black bottle

     assures me I can dance

         convinces me I'm irresistible to all men

             transforms me into a total badass

                 makes sure I remember none of it

  1. And puke your brains out on the dance floor. I've met that beast. Good point.

  2. Hahaha! Forgetting it all isn't bad. The only problem is that everyone else remembers and have the YouTube videos to prove it :)

  3. If only I could keep the beast on the first point, I'd have a lot more fun at parties. But that last point is an important one, for sure. :)

    1. I think the last point may be the most important one. :) Thanks for reading!

  4. Those magical nights with Johnny. (Or was it Jose?) I can't remember, but I'm sure we had a good time. At least I think we did...I confess I was too busy worshiping the porcelain god.

    Brilliant Ivy! This has my vote:)
