Freak - Trifecta: Week 80

Bake until edges are set
seemed an extraordinarily
profound thing for the back
of a package of pre made
cookie dough
to say
Something more akin to what a god
might say
of her creation
half-baked Adam’s underdone gooey snivelling
just too entirely untenable
until Eve finally lit one
under him -
flaming bad boy
baked too long in the private hell
of oneself,
now a freak getting his fix
setting all the other bright ones ablaze,
setting the whole
damn kitchen
on fire

This past weekend's winners - check 'em out!

Any piece that earns a resounding yes from all three of our editors deserves to take home the gold.  That's just what Suzanne did this week with Three Little Words, a terrific example of the way an infinitesimal action can have a monumental impact.  
She shifts. Almost imperceptibly.
But he is tuned to each breath, each beat of her heart, each dewdrop of sweat on her skin. And he knows, in that shift, he has lost her.
Misky takes second with Doves Fly.  She nailed that headlong dive into the abyss of young love so perfectly.  Christine from Trudging Through Fog takes third with Spark.  The final phrase in her piece clinched her win.  She claims it was serendipitous, but we know from her long-standing participation here that it's actually skill.

Congrats, winners.  Beautiful work.  Make sure to check out all of our winners if you haven't already.  Or again, if you already have.  We can all probably find the time for 99 words.

On to the weekly prompt.  This week's word was suggested by Marie Nicole.  Have fun with it and we'll see you on Friday.
