She left me
dry like chalk
on my tongue
on the sidewalk
in the sunshine
dripping buttery

(a found poem in a facebook conversation)


About LW Lindquist

I'm a writer. I'm also a claims adjuster, helping people and insurance companies make sense of loss. I work out of my home in the rural Midwest most days, and other days, out of yours. When I'm not crunching numbers or scaling small buildings, you can find me with a stiff cup of coffee and a book on my sofa, bantering in the introvert's hideout on Facebook, or avoiding Twitter. I'm an editor at Tweetspeak Poetry, a premier play-place for poets, word lovers, artists and photographers. We're home to a poetry daily (Every Day Poems) and an award-winning press (T. S. Poetry Press) which boasts an Oprah Magazine Best Summer Read. We're also the fine confectioners of WordCandy.me where you can share sweetness with someone special or the whole world.


  1. it’s a kick to see you having such fun with words.

  2. You chalked your poem? You owned colored chalk?
