Trifecta Week Sixty-Six What have you done?

Trifecta: Week Sixty-Six

Here I am again with my submission from the brilliant Trifecta Team. The word is DOCTOR (noun).

a : material added (as to food) to produce a desired effect  b : a blade (as of metal) for spreading a coating or scraping a surface

I am running with 3 (a). The response must be between 33 and 333 words.

What have you Done

She was reminded of her child-hood
her days in the park
playing on the merry-go-round
not a carousel with painted horses
that majestically rose and fell
when she pretended she was riding
a ‘real’ horse,  but the iron circular
playground ‘swing’
she knew it by no other name
holding onto the iron, her feet running fast
beside it, trying to gain speed
so that she may then jump upon
to enjoy the ride
though sometimes giddiness happened
her head would feel light
she even thought she would be sick
this is what she felt like now
the scenery around her was blurry
her stomach did not feel well
she wanted it to stop
she wanted to get off
the merry-go-round memories
came flooding back
a hotel room the two of them
he handed her a cocktail
did he doctor it
and why?

  1. I was with you on the merry go round memory and imagined myself on one as a child…then my heart fell when I realized the meaning of the last four lines. Nice twist at the end, but scary situation!

  2. I remember those things on the playground. So scary that something from childhood is what she connects to the awful thing happening in the present.
