An Explanation (& Free Recipe)

Avatar Author: Tad Winslow "If you don't work nothing will." Maya Angelou Read Bio

Mushroom cloud, BOOM, loud, shh—
Don’t think that way.
Brush it off like banana breath in the morning.

Here’s a hint, um,
sometimes I write
quick & rickety,
like, pretty random,
rambling on as long
as the rhythm stays strong.

Have the recipe for free:

1)Mix some dumb wit
with an abundance
of irrational substances
& you’ll come up with what it is
i.e.*cough, vomit, shiz, whizzer comet.

Yup.

2) Regurgitate half a cup
of sugary syrup.

3) Add a dash of half asleep—
until you can see tiny sheep
hop fences by the creek
in the dreams we
can’t keep.

    Thanks for the recipe…

    Cute, and charmingly self-effacing; I enjoyed reading this one.
