It’s a Zoo!

“It’s a zoo over there!”

She exclaimed. Out of breath.

Cheeks still red from the stairs

And the cold evening air.

“It’s a zoo in the store.

It’s a zoo in the park.

It’s a zoo … at the zoo,”

Her smile grew.

She cracked up.

Couldn’t stop.

Her delight

Only matched

By the first time she ‘got’

“Slipped my mind” meant forgot.

The Kitchen Sink

The house snored and stomachs sighed content

But pots and pans and ladle, towel, bowl and plate

Slept not a wink awaiting dawn inside the kitchen sink …

If the distance’s too far

And the winning too tempting

There is always the tummy

To improve odds

Of aiming.

A Cookie Riff

He shook his head

At jam and bread

Objected to any other

Kind of spread

And lectured mommy

From his seat

That cookie’s the only

Thing to eat.

Another Peek

Knock-knock, who’s there, inside this hole?

Who dug a circle in the wall?

Does someone live inside this space?

Is it a little fairy’s place?

Knock-knock, who’s there? I want to know.

Will you come out before I go?

I’m sorry that I’ve come to peek

But oh, I do love hide-and-seek!

Ghoulish Goulash

Old Fashioned Goulash (Yummly.com)

 

She hates soup. She hates stew.

She can’t stand beef. Tomatoes, too.

She doesn’t care if it’s tradition.

She doesn’t care it’s grandma’s edition.

To her the concept is just foolish

And your goulash is plain ghoulish.

Definite Identity

“The fact of being

Who or what

A person

Or thing

Is.”

A name.

A self.

A singularity.

A distinct

Individuality.

A recognition of

An original

Personality.

 

(Poem inspired by the Oxford Dictionary)
