Monkeying Around

When chores call

Not all heed

Timeless work,

Patience’s creed.

Restless fingers

Supersede

Newer vistas

To be keyed.

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 Stalk?

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.

Aladdin

Did Aladdin forget you

On the shore

Of this lake,

Or did he just land

For a quick dip

To take?

Time Travel

Time Travel SmadarHalperinEpshtein

Out of place

Out of time

As the half-hour

Chimes

Periods bend

And history glides

In past with present

Side by side.

Odd Ride

A pick up?

Jeep duplex?

A jacuzzi inside?

This hybrid is

A heck

Of an over-decked

Ride.

 

(Yep, this one’s odd even for Manhattan …)

Out Of Place

Surely all would admit

Something here does not fit

King or not

No one ought

To require this bed

For their camped royal head.
