What you think about when you're not wearing underwear

The socioeconomic
ramifications
of a society
controlled
by religious fundamentalists
and failed comediennes
and the moral ambiguities
that arise
when Zeus and Sleeping Beauty
take over the Kingdom
and charge admission
to the show.

 

Rejection letter meltdown

When I lost
my favourite
rejection letter
I started
to cry
big, fat,
blue tears
stained my carpet
all because that letter
my favourite
rejection letter
was missing
and I missed
the fine-ching
of its voice
and how it made
my tea
just the way I liked it.
