Oonah says: “It is always such a pleasure to write to one of Jack Savage’s art prompts. In this case, knowing nothing about accountancy or the city was a little disadvantageous but there are always biscuits and the human propensity to ignore all the signs life gives us until it’s too late. I don’t know why Joe jumped or I’d have written a different story. I am sure Jack doesn’t know why either, or he’d not have left him on the brink. Anyway I am away back to and what passes for sanity now and edit some poetry at The Linnet’s Wings.”

  2. Oompah, I loved the foreshadowing in your poem. There was something about the voice, and, of course, the title, that let me know all was not going to be well for Joe that morning. Great metaphor, too.

  3. Thank you. The title is Jack’s title for the art work so I wrote to that title as well as the art. The biscuits were my idea though 😉
