Dropping a plate at Suppertime

Teresa Jane Wouters

Lettuce leaves tossing

CRASH rattling

green peas rolling past

tippy toes treading

on broken glass.  

Ketchup bleeding

Fish fingers pointing  

and everyone,

everyone                                                                                                                laughing

Writing has been a hobby for Teresa Wouters since her grade seven English teacher allowed ten minutes of free writing every class.  Since moving to Grande Prairie, in 2004, Teresa has been publishing her short stories and winning writing contests.  Teresa graduated with a Masters in Creative Writing from UBC in 2014.
