Writing Workshop Wednesday: In Praise of Having No Backbone, by Shawn McCutcheon

In Praise of Having No Backbone 


A squid lives on the bottom of the sea,

I live at the bottom of society.


Whenever we get into tight places

we seem to get through it

no matter what size


squeezing our way 

through the problem,

moving on, and sometimes

leaving a mess behind us.


Never the less, we survive 

tight jams.



Shawn participates in Megaphone's creative writing workshop at Onsite.
