Cooking


I found the dog in the tomatos.

I watered him until he bloomed.

The flowers were pink and green.

 

I picked them and had him

for dinner. Dog soup.

Dog I rest my head on.

I laid down on the dog and slept.

 

I found the family in the basement.

They had fallen between the pages

of a book. I read them a story

and put them to bed.

 

I like to walk at dusk

when the bats come out.

Tell me what color bats are.
