.it even has eyes.

Written for this week’s Trifecta Writing Challenge:

On now to our weekly prompt. It’s our last Halloween-inspired prompt of 2013, and we can’t wait to see what you’ve got in store for us. Please remember that we are looking for the third definition of our prompt word. Please also note that we need the word exactly as it appears below. No tense changes allowed. Good luck!


1 (interjection) used to express contempt or disapproval or to startle or frighten
2 (noun) a sound that people make to show they do not like or approve of someone or something
3 (verb) to show dislike or disapproval of someone or something by shouting “Boo” slowly
word count: 71

dissatisfaction mounts

they notice as the jaw attached to it flaps up and down open and shut,
giving it the appearance of a dummy with a hand shoved inside of it, that an unseen hand is triggering said movement

no brain behind the words,
just a distant larynx
totally detached from the situation

the crowd responds with a resounding boo. drawn out and runny like molasses, as to not be forgotten…
