Day 20 NapoWriMo prompt is the sijo, a Korean form. It’s a triplet with lines of 14-16 syllables, each divided. Conflict, development, resolution with a twist.

The school bell rings; kids enter one by one, masked, alone in the crowd.

They ignore the rule to space themselves out, clamouring for comfort.

Teens want to crush close together, as they stare at their phones.

    Teens aren’t eh only ones two want to “crush close together” . Me too, I say. Especially, I want to crush close to the grandchildren. We’re nearly there – HOPEFULLY.
