PHOTO PROMPT © What’s His Name

By Neel Anil Panicker

A commode in the middle of the forest. Anwar stared at the faded bluish relic that seemed to have come straight from the Dark Ages.

Biological exigencies demanded he use it. He hacked his way past the thick foliage of forested outgrowth, slashing past gossamer spider webs.

Half dropping his pants, he was about to plonk himself onto the seat when he noticed the dehydrated puddle of urine on which floated small balls of human excreta, hair, even traces of blood.

Unmindful, Anwar eased himself into it.

Who says Reality TV winners ever had it easy.

  4. Dear Neel,

    This one had me gagging. Vivid descriptions for sure. There’s a reason I don’t watch reality television. A good piece of writing nonetheless.

    I have to agree your description were vivid, may a bit too vivid. I like the twist at the end.

  7. Wow Neel, the description is so vivid – really good writing!


  8. I just don’t understand what moves people to perform some of these reality show tasks. And I don’t understand Anwar, either. 😦


  9. The obnoxiously revolting lengths some people go to win what they have set their hearts to. Sorry, Sandra my intention was not to make it revolt your sensibilities but if have done that it shows i have succeeded in doing a good writing task.


  10. I’d have to be getting a scrubbing brush – even if I was on a reality TV show. Good yukko description.


    1. I agree but then there are still some of us…Thanks Irene.

  15. There’s reality and there’s reality. This was just too real for me. It left a picture in my mind that will stick there for a while. Good writing though, Neel. 😀 — Suzanne
