The universe must be a teenage girl. So much darkness, so many stars.

Backstroking down Sanity Avenue,

I basked in the faces

that were like bread roll appetizers passed around

 in the hot-jelly café of life.

I am happy to take any of them to the restaurant

 and break rolls with them

and we can eat our sorrows away.

You are the soup, I am the crouton.

You are the spoon to my fork.

I am the parmesan cheese

 to your pepper-shaker.

You are the salt to my tortilla.

You are the tip,

I am the table.

I can't tell why I love this poem...is it bad? Good? Terrible? I love it for its sheer silliness.

"It Will Be Good." (complicated semi-spiritual emotional story.)

"Upon his bench the pieces lay
As if an artwork on display
Of gears and hands
And wire-thin bands
That glisten in dim candle play." -Janice T., Clockwork[love that poem, dont know why, im not steampunk]
