Verses Inspired By Things Seen at the Science Center

At the park outside
The frisbee-playing longboarders
Perform at 7
$10 only
Dr. Horrible’s Sing A-Long Blog
Enough said

Don't get fat
If you do
You will get sleep apnea
Nevermind your skinny uncle’s
Unsplinted mouth
Nevermind the ways you're fine

At the planetarium
I'm falling forward without moving
With entire galaxies
With the probable core of Jupiter
Until the child beside me slams
Her rainbow boot into my hip

Molerats make poor pets
They breathe best asleep
In a pile
In their nakedness
The soldier molerat stands guard forever
Without a tunneler to defend
Or a queen to come home to
