Andrea’s Poem

Thank you Andrea R. Huelsenbeck for creating a beautiful poem from my word list! This is the bestest thing about blogging! Creative exchanges and discovery and connecting with another poet.

What use has a mermaid for a surge protector?Will it help her clean the lint trap?

In a fit of indignation

She stamps her foot

And eyes the thing on the ceiling fan that turns around.

Impatiently, she makes a caviar sandwich,

Which immediately gets soaked because of all the water.

The dream catcher snatches all her aspirations.

She crawls out onto the bridge shrouded in fog,

Tying a cable-knit sweater round her neck like a cape,

While the clouds hide the planets.
