Glasses

I wrote this for a Writerís society exercise.  I was studying a pair of glasses lying upside-down on a table.

Somebodyís eyes
I lie and wait
Upside-down
I see the world
Spatters of mustard
Mar my simple beauty
Breath and sleeve
Everythingís better
Below me another
I see upside-down
But no more feeling
Than the black, polished table
Time to leave
And I fly
Sung with practiced grace
To rest on the nose
Of a familiar face.

Tiger Dreams

My toy tiger was sitting on a table next to a small box of frosted flakes, so I wondered what my toy was thinking about Tony the Tiger.

I sit next to Tony
Heís GRRREAT!
Why canít I be like him?

I look at my owner
Puzzlement on my face
She looks up
Maybe hearing
Then back to her notebook

Why canít I?
Who said I couldnít?

The nameless people in China
Who stuffed my body
And set my face
Thatís who.

The Plaque

I saw one of them annoying plaques on the wall.  Yay observation.


Proudly proclaiming
ĎThe Honour Systemí
Letters fade to blurs
Eventually becoming
Pompous Teacher Torture




 Never regret
