sixes

the number six is maybe the best
six six six six six six six
better than prime it’s evenly¬†perfect
every number wants to be six
superior highly composite six
perfect harmonic divisor six
six six six six six six six
so many sixes i might get six

pinky toes

my pinky toes point upward
up upward to the sky
from above they look so silly
and even more so from the side

they look a little iffy
and pretty out of place
they’re rather super funky
pointing up to space

i’ve never really used them
except to draw a crowd
but even though they’re useless
they make me very proud

uniqueness is a blessing
no matter what the form
it’s the perfect way of living
divergent from the norm

parched

oh desert dry desert
would you have just a tiny bit of water?
i’m afraid you make living quite grim
even the oases are seeing things
might you spare just a drop or two of rain?
even a half would be fine
without just a drip, not even a sip,
surely the cacti will die
my skin is like toast
burnt like a roast
gasping for liquid relief
i’m really quite desperate
please show me a creek!
this could be the end for me
