So please

There is plenty

Not amusing

For this bovine

To project,

When she’s placed

Right where her cousin

Is being served

As steak.

If all train seats are taken

And the ride is still long

Why not pull out a beach chair

You happen to bring along

And with paper at hand

Lounge like where you belong?

“Bah,” they taunted. “Your resolutions never last.”

She stewed.

When her twin brothers showed up for their monthly siblings’-dinner, muscles and righteous bravado rippling under too-tight shirts, she knew what they were expecting: Frozen pizza or boxed mac-and-cheese. The usual Candace-can’t-cook stuff.

They sprawled on her couch and let her putter in the kitchen.

“When’s the pizza ready, Sis?” Brian called. “We’re starving.”

She smirked. He and Bobby lectured her alright, but she knew they secretly looked forward to their junkfood fix.

“Oh, no pizza,” she brought out the shot glasses. “Wheatgrass!”

Eight brown ducks bobbing by

In the shade, under sky

Waiting for humans’ bread

To fall down on their head.

If you come atop such

Bottled up

Glass

Be sure to not

Pass

Such opportune

Moment

For an impromptu

Dance class.

When the books need a home

And a baby needs tending

There’s a case to be made

To setting the workshop’s

Assistant

Right in it.

Make Gravity Weep

Upsidedown house SmadarHalperinEpshtein

Hold on to your hat

And the change in your pockets

They upended this house

From drawers to sockets.

You will see chairs on ceilings

Light fixtures on floors

Every room, nook, and cranny

Odder than one before.

Floating car in garage

Beds that won’t let you sleep

Basement’s legs in the sky

Will make gravity weep.

So come right on in

Come sideways and down

This whole silly house

Is a merry go clown.

Pumpkin patch

Pumpkin hill

In pigtails

Overkill

And some weed

In the back

Growing beanstalk

For Jack?

Drive-Thru

It is not everyday

You see ostrich crew

Arrive for your order

At the Drive-Thru,

Or have zebras peek in

To ensure you are pleased

Beating deer to the chase

To customers’ ease.
