Chocolate produces its own symphony
Did you hear the cellos melting
underneath the clarinet highlight?
Yeah baby, the violins raise it up
so the cymbals can knock it out of the park
There’s nothing worse
than a crafty criminal
How about a batty banana?
Who let Joe in? I thought we locked the door?
Ooh — I’ve got it — aloe with an attitude!
Those pesky bananas.
Keep giving away our position.
We earthborns need to happen
across some accidental handsaws.
The dog bristles right before he barks
The grandfather clock whirs right before it chimes
The air warms right before the phone rings
The esophagus ripples right before the burp releases
It was all yellow,
Deceptive and standing tall,
It will attack soon.
I was four this morning when I woke up
nine at breakfast, crunching
my sugar and milk
fifteen at three when I crashed
for my nap
twenty at dinner, stirring
cheese into boxed macaroni
at bedtime, I was twenty-three
staring down an eternal tunnel
of the unknown but likely doom
