Daily Prompt:  Fearful Symmetry

Pick a letter, any letter.  Now write a story, poem, or post in which every line starts with that letter.

Letter B

Bad days come and go, but we have had a month to cope with Rozie’s abscessed tooth.

Because she was resistant to antibiotics, the vet doubled up on the dosage.

Before we knew it Rozie was not eating.

But then we gave her little bits of things to keep her strength up and force fed her (via a giant syringe) a high caloric food mixed with antibiotics.

By the time she had been on the antibiotic slurry for a week, she lost control.

Bacteria and bowel movements took over all of our lives.

Beneath Rozie we put down old sheets to try to keep up with her frequent “gifts.”

Beginning two days ago we stopped the antibiotics.

Brave Rozie ate her first real meal this morning minus medications.

Blue flowered sheets still line the living room floor.

Boiling them may make them useable again as rags or drop cloths.

Beautiful old Rozie chased a deer yesterday and tried to catch a squirrel too.
