sediment of the daily
the pollywogs and the egg: "artificial insemination,"and her chilling book spine story: "a day at the beach."
The pollywogs pursue the egg She is demure they wigglethey beg they plead they try forceHer shell holds rigid and whiteShe knows inside she is liquid she is runny and yellowGive a crack and they would devour herThey try poetry Her shell is hardThey try bravadoHer shell is hardThey try being funnyDoesn’t she just want someone who can make her laugh?Her shell is hard and brittle They give up become frogs hop awayShe becomes a chickenyears laterOn the edge of a marshy pond they catch each other’s eyeSilly youth they both think at the exact same moment
o this is so wonderful! what a poignant and bittersweet tale.
