Puma Passes Out

Puma paced, preoccupied.
Perhaps, she went too far this time.
Her heart, she followed, though plummeting inside.

Puma played it safe, you see, her designs always quite clean.
Pedestrian, pacifying, plain.

Please.

Puma pulsed within, craving dynamic peppy seams.
Passion for fashion pushed her over the edge.
Now she waits for the critics to drop their sledge.

The paper slips under her door.
Puma pounces, peeks, prays.
And before she can pull her eyes away,
Puma sees Princess Pud
On the full cover front page,
Parading about in her new favs

The headline reads:
Princess Pud Proudly Prances in Her New Puma Puffy Pantses!

Puffy Pants are all the rage
Thanks to Puma and her plucky passion for forward thinking fashion!

Oh, good god,
She can hardly believe it.
Puma passes out
Just to conceive it.

A Move to the Woods

I’d like to go for a walk in the woods

A forest

A grove

A riverbank

A valley

A wet grassland

A secluded marsh

Along a fallen log

I would find a tree and climb it

And sit for awhile

See the plants

The birds

The insects

The amphibians

The mollusks

The mammals

The reptiles

I’d live in the tree

Maybe just hug it

because it’s round
