Good evening, Pub Poets! Lisa here to welcome you to Prosery: the prompt where we write prose based on some given lines of poetry. This can be flash-fiction or creative non-fiction, but it cannot exceed 144 words in total (not including the title) and must not be poetry (no versification, line breaks, metre, etc.) https://dversepoets.com/2023/01/16/dverse-prosery-everything-is-stitched/
Everything I do is stitched with its color.
Melody looked straight ahead as the doctor poked and prodded, trying to feel for a tender spot.
“Does it hurt here?”
“No, towards the back a little, down a bit.”
“Did you get your appendix out, Melody?”
“Yeah, do you think it has something to do with that?”
“Well, typically the appendix is taken out of the front of the abdomen but there could have been other circumstances. When I perform an appendectomy my work is much more precise than this scar.”
“I don’t know what they did honestly. It was after a car accident and I was passing out and waking up every few minutes it felt like.”
“Well, I will have the nurse check your chart. It definitely wasn’t my work. Everything I do is stitched with its color and the appendix to me is purple.”
