Your Baby is Starving
The muteness of a smoke alarm in a dog’s vicinity
Did the hailstorm damage your car?
There was a Doctor in my school whose last name was Akula. She failed at swag,
and carried bags of acne. So they rechristened her to Dracula.
My ma said all you need is love and tamales
After the root canal, she was haunted by surgical masks
take your time
I was in Washington, before Obama’s inauguration, before his drones scrawled
“Still lovin’ it?” across Afghani skies
A website showing sex offenders in my area; Uncle Sam pops up in a new window.
I never got to see the beauty queen posing with skinned Rattle Snakes
Is Christmas celebrated in Bombay?
Strippers in fluorescent lingerie enter into alien matrimony
I can’t prescribe drugs
My teammate’s neighbor arsoned away her husband with massage oil
I’m not laughing at you
They call it “dawn glow”, the balloons firing up at Albuquerque like missionary pods
There’s something on your nose
You who are knocking at my door past ten asking money for dog food
My nephew loves “Charlie and The Chocolate Factory”
I shall revert back to you
