Totally Optional Prompt: Unsavory

Hello, everyone. I agreed to help Tiel keep TOP going so here is this week's prompt.

Have you read Maxine Kumin's Excrement Poem? In it she honors that which we all do but rarely talk about. She takes something distasteful and turns it into poetry.

So, that's your prompt this week: take an unsavory topic and find a way to make it glow. Polish it. Turn it into something beautiful.

Please come back on Thursday to share your poems and, remember, if this prompt doesn't appeal to you, it's totally optional. We'd still like to see what you wrote this week.
