Side Effects of Soup

Chopped carrots and celery
tossed into the bubbling pot
leave the counter bright strewn 
with yellow and orange confetti,
tops and tails for compost.

Crone Tree

Shriveled trunk and branches
disappear against dark, wet forest
leaving small red apples 
suspended in midair.

Post Chickenpoxalypse

The school bus flashes to a stop.
“Well,” he grumps, 
This should be fun.”
and slouches across the road
under his red backpack.
