Poetree and other assorted foliage

staunched was the flow of salad dressing–”light”
like a halflinger horse in a galloping show of fright
the earthy smell of dried up cheese alight
was inconceivable
so then what begot the hue-less glow
betwixt the likely unstoppable flow
that ran from a straight, long row
of corn

thusly is a redundant word
because its root is a verb
so it doesn’t really need to end
in -ly

the escape pod was stuck
in the launching bay
so they panicked
despite the
nachos
piloted by
aliens from the
far away planet of
a thousand and one suns

run away, young squirrel
danger grows quickly near
and if you don’t get moving
you’ll end up… oops

And when they sank, few cared, since few heard, and none remembered. Because it was Tuesday. It was, in fact, Tuesday when some of the most important words were uttered above the canal. Important if you’re a duck. The words were a construction order, which authorized the filling of the canal with concrete to make more room for the expansion of nearby malls. The ducks didn’t like it.
