Flowers–with sneeze and–honey with
bees–Trees with apples–but
apples–are leaves–leaves are grass–grass
are plants–plants are–colors–
colors are paints–paints are water–
water is sky.

The Pebble

The Pebble went to the store because he was lonely
He met a person and said
“You want to be my friend!!!??”
“No” the person said in a British accent.
So the pebble went on to find
Another pebble “Hiii!!”
“What!!!???” The other said
“You want to be my friend?!!”
“Okay” so they rolled away finally

The Meaning

The meaning is like taking a bite of freezing cold
Ice cream that is hot not knowing which temperature it is
The action of the word is the weirdest of the weirdest.
The exact meaning is—peaches pulled from a tube.
Having an air sucking bite you find it hollow inside
leaving no flavor to enjoy.
The one fruit people probably won’t like.
It might taste like a toy from the Pack ’n Play

Lizzy Porter


The highways, thousands of monkeys screaming, many fire trucks
blasting their sirens, a nuke going off a half mile
away, trains running on their track, like banging a mallet
on a glass window, and billions of eagles blowing your
ears off your head.

The Secret of Golf

Shhhh. Don’t tell anybody!
Not even your family. Secret message.
The secret of golf is, wham.

The See Food Diet

The see food diet is where you eat
anything you see
I tried to not look at brick walls and stuff
but sometimes I can’t keep my eyes shut all
the time and I gave out and three times
I chose my times not very wisely
one time I looked at my knee I ate it
the second time I ate a spider web
the last time I looked it was not
yummy it was gravel I tried to not
eat it but I couldn’t stand it
so I had to eat it was as hard as rock
I think I know why though probably
because it was rock.
