Who Am I To Say This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

   Wappy, sloppy, poppy, mippy, sippy, wuppy puppy people

eating eyeballs with ice picks. Oba-loba Jahova's Witness pullin'

off my glasses as he juggles jello goblets and his eyelids inside -

out worms in his ears. Who am I to say?

Poppy, sloopy, baggy, beggy, eggy skipping sexy's leg until the

sky falls on the nest and rocks the radio; spins and spits and

silly gillies upping, pupping, picking picky pandas in the closet

with a fork. Who am I to say?

Ripping, skipping, scoping, hoping corpses in an elephant's ear on

a Sunday morning. Van Goghs in cement and frozen frog legs in a

gumball machine on the corner of a toenail. Poison ivy on the

arsenic. Who am I to say?

Porcelain tires on plastic pennies with garlands of crocodile

teeth waving in the dragon's breath, twisting like a Poe with

lilies on linoleum. Upsies-downsies, all-aroundsees. See the

snake soar! Who am I to say?
