Toilet training

her wry face blooms red
lo! roots! Dark and thick--
the corner; forbidden soil.

No, no, Rebekah. This is haiku. It's RELAXING to read haiku.

Well, how about this one, instead:

little freckles float
upon a smooth white cheek--
Oreos and milk.

Gauntlets said...

Lisa: :D That and they don't leave freckles in the milk or on the babies. Very clean, Chips Ahoy.

Well, how about that. I'll just cut and paste and contest. Because who doesn't want her ridiculousness cut and paste into a publication she will never have the chance to read?
