"I don't have time to worry about something as petty as what I look like" - Adele Adkins

I open mailbox
And what I see is something very
Unusual. Something very explosive.
Something red with three measly
Letters on them, T N T
Definitely dynamite
Ava says to take it out,
Drop it then stop on it
But it isn’t even on fire yet.

I open the door
And what I see is something very
Furry. Something very cute.
Something brown with four measly
Letters on the collar, FIDO
Definitely a dog
Ava says to take it out
Drop it then walk with it
But it isn’t even exited yet.

The author's comments:
Things in life are just crazy. Get used to it. This poem is about the weird things in life, whether it be a bomb threat (metaphorically) or a new dog (also metaphorically) This is about a girl who - out of the blue- everybody hates. And she turns it into a new friend. Ava is just a name I stole (from my best friend - trust me she is really nice) But she is the girl who just gives the wrong advice.
