Prompt #1b: Describe the longest, happiest, or most excrutiating hour of your life without using abstractions such as fear, death, love, happy, upset, confused. Instead, infuse the piece with concrete words such as chair, coffee, crooked, flavor, sand, shingles, crack. Avoid words like pain and embrace words like pane. If you can't see it, touch it, smell it, hear it, or taste it, leave it. 

wind peeled, tears torn from eyelids
vocal chords
house, ring, chapel, offspring
gloved hands, exposed fingers
a distance from my own
nose running, look at ground, not blue eyes
voice gone, chords tight
turn on heel 180 degrees
walk the tundra, empty handed
