30-Day Poetry Challenge: Day 17

Day 17: Use volta (a poetic turn) in a poem of any length (it can be a sonnet, or not). For more about the volta, click here.

“Our expectations have crashed,” he said,
his voice full of fed-up exasperation, 
his eyes rolling in disgust. 
And yet, still he watches “Access Hollywood.”

About nikkimmascali

I am an editor, writer and New Yorker who has ink for blood and the blog name + tattoo to prove it. Also of note: I follow more dogs than people on Instagram. This is my blog about reading, writing and absolutely no 'rithmetic because I am horrendous at math.
