Cheetos and Milk

Huge eyeballs bounce across the desert

Floor. Ovens cook chocolate chip cookies

And pizza for the crazy party we’re having

In a few minutes. Can you count the suns

Jumping down the road in rush hour speed

Of sound? I vote for more Cheetos and milk.

Time Warp

We were creeping up the back stairway,

When all of a sudden we heard a blood

Curdling rainbow crack out of a cream

Cheese sandwich in the garbage can. I 

Gripped the pant legs of my sister until I

Heard the voice of a ghost sing the National

Anthem from the window sill. I jumped up

And ran like a son of a gun until my pants

Fell down. I realized I left my watch on the

Ground in the back alley. So much for time.
