An Ordinary Day

July
23

There’s a dolphin on my doorstep. It’s an ordinary day. He’s delivering the paper in his ordinary way. There’s a bison in my bathtub singing ordinary songs, and some hippos having ordinary hippo sing-alongs. In the pantry there’s a penguin painting ordinary scenes of opposums in their ordinary orange submarines. There’s an ordinary rhino racing […]

Wet Christmas

July
23

“Is it snowing outside?” I expectantly cried. “What’s that sound? Do you know? Is that Santa I hear?” “There is nothing outside,” mother calmly replied. “It’s not Santa or snow. No, it’s only rain, dear.” –Kenn Nesbitt

No Pencil

No pencil. No marker. No paint brush. No pen. No nothing to draw with or paint with again. No blue paint. No green paint. No pink paint. No red. Mom takes them away when I colour my head. –Kenn Nesbitt

My Grandpa

July
23

I’ll tell you a bit of my grandpa. I think he’s a thousand years old. He must keep his hands in the freezer; I’ve never felt ice cubes that cold. The hair growing off of his earlobes is more than the hair on his head. His eyes are all baggy and bloodshot. His nose is […]

I Made a Hat

July
23

I made a hat from fur and felt, a feather, and a leather belt. I topped it with a pretty bow and lots of ribbons, just for show. I held it up, admiring it, then tried it on. It wouldn’t fit! I pushed and pulled with all my might, the front, the back, the left, […]

Mushrooms in my underpants with leeks and lettuce leaves. Okra, onions, artichokes, asparagus and beets; buried neatly underneath the cushions of our seats. All the rest I’ve […]

The turkey taquitos are tasty today. The pizza is perfectly fine. The burgers are better than ever before. The salads are simply divine. It’s something that never has happened before, and something we thought never could. But somehow a miracle must have occurred; The hot lunch is actually good. –Kenn Nesbitt

A Fish in a Spaceship

July
22

A fish in a spaceship is flying through school. A dinosaur’s dancing on top of a stool. The library’s loaded with orange baboons, in purple tuxedos with bows and balloons. The pigs on the playground are having a race while pencils parade in their linens and lace. As camels do cartwheels and elephants fly, bananas […]
