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


optimism is believing
people are inherently good
no matter how bad they seem
everyone has the power
to engender good in others
and in the absence of light
goodness shines bright

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


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
