HUNGRY AS A DOG
Mom fighting with Dad
Macaroni in the kitchen
The furniture that is on fire
A dog having its puppies.
Raisins in my cookie.

the bug and its good dance at 10:01
the food from the city at 2:16

the meat. It was gross.
The terror looked like someone that
got burned by lava. He was black all over
with blood on his big, treacherous teeth. He
scares kids who disobey orders from their
parents like Jimmy Jimmy. That guy watched TV all
night long. But when he went for his hour
of sleep. Blam! Terror jumped out from behind the door
and gave a big, big, big, roar. Jimmy
Jimmy almost had a heart attack. He jumped
in bed wishing he had never watched TV
past his bedtime. Terror left with a small
grunt and a big roar.
King of Blytheville
One day a king came to Blytheville
with knights and they had gold all
over them and rode unicorns as tall as a
car. He ordered everyone into old hay
houses then put up a flag that
said, “I Rule!” One day I smelled
burning flesh and animals.
My irritation is my teacher
He’s very weird.
He cries all day long
while he sucks on his thumb.
He is my teacher
He’s dating my mom.
Dolphins texting each other
the ocean filled with phones and laptops
chicken, soup, soap and angels’ wings
batteries from phones
dolphins lol-ing in their texts.
