Don’t step on the pushpin.
Watch the dusty elf ski.
Look out for the googly eyes.
I made a list of things I did earlier so I can check off most of them.

Blame the pieces
of ivory implanted
in the chest

I couldn’t decide what picture book
to write so I ended up with a circus
in a barnyard starring an octopus
with a stutter due to a horrible

blends a blizzard
with marshmallow fluff
and folds in wind
The volcano has overwhelmed the containment protocol
Contaminants, including bacteria, have spread
Forgeries have compounded the issue at headquarters
Don’t trust the caterpillars
