Carrot (an acrostic poem)

Couldn’t be easier really

Asking for help with her honey sweet come hither voice

Reaching out to make sure they knew what she wanted

Really it shouldn’t always work

Obvious they never opened up their eyes

Till she beat them to death with her large stick

Ignorance (an acrostic poem)

I look at the strange colorful fluid in front of me

Giving it a sniff I am confused

Never before have I smelled such a thing

Ordinarily I would just pass this opportunity up

Reality is the person handing it to me is so hot

And I really want a chance to go home with them

Now you might say I am a fool for even contemplating this

Certainly you would probably be right

Even I wondered as I closed my eyes and chugged it down

Starlight (an acrostic poem)

Standing in a drizzle of ancient photons

Thinking of the vast distances they had traveled

Announcing their presence on my retina

Revealing their origin in the universe

Losing myself in that moment

I lay back opening my parched eyes

Gazing even deeper back in time

Hoping one day I could gaze so far back

That I could see the birth of my atoms
