‘No, please.’  he urged.

But his hair had already crept behind the man. Caressing his back seductively, the man turned and gasped. The boy’s hair coiled and strangled his throat.


My first writing challenge in Trifectra.

Thirty years ago, Roald Dahl published the book Dirty Beasts, a collection of poems for children about weird and wonderful animals. The last poem, however, is called The Tummy Beast about a boy who thinks there’s someone living in his belly. Your Trifextra challenge is to write 33 words on a beast in an unusual place. No swamps or forests or caves, we really want you to take your beast out of its comfort zone. – See more at:

    Barbering can be a dangerous job, I reckon.
