“Pass the shocking fuzz, please?”

“This journey work of the stars is delicious! How did you make it?”

“It’s simple, really. I mix a cup of red, red rose with cloudless climes and starry skies and chill the ingredients in the fridge for a skunk hour before roasting at 350˙.”

“What’s for dessert?”

“Central Market had a special on handcrafted yellow fog that rubs its back upon the window-panes, brushed with what did I know, what did I know to add just the right amount of piquancy. There’s also I’m nobody who are you? left over from book club–it’s lighter.”

“Sounds delicious. I’ll taste both.”

“Mom? May I be excused? My stomach’s thick as autumnal leaves.”

“You didn’t eat your red fox stain yet, and how will you ever develop big love-crumbs without finishing your persimmons, swelled, heavy as sadness?”

“I ate all the Girl Mad as Birds! I’m full. The next thing, I’ll be farting a bag full of God.”

“Well, okay. Run outside where I can see you sprinkled with rosy light, but avoid the caverns measureless to man.”

“Okay. Good night ladies; good night, sweet ladies.”

“Right here in the kitchen. See my new granite counters? The mason added quartz and watersmooth silver stallion bone.”

“Oh my! Everything is rainbow, rainbow, rainbow!”
