Mystic Signs


(NOTE: Nothing profound here. Just enjoy the sounds of the words as you read them aloud.)

 

Chocolate muffins linger on,
Tingling tongues until they’re gone.
Wasted apples clog the sink
Quicker than a rat can think.
 
Asked to whirl through vats of dye,
Pinwheels stop and wonder why.
“What’s in it for us?” they ask.
“What an idiotic task!”
 
Blueberry pie, tasty treat!
Reading tea leaves—oh how sweet!
Mystic signs of grit and grace—
Scrub your hands and wash your face!

Reading Fiction


The fiction you read every day
Can mess up your mind, so they say.
But can it be worse
Than ludicrous verse
That no one will read anyway?

autumn afternoon—
reading to a dying man
by the waning light
