Poems

by Crystal Grimshaw

Glass

Red glass, red hat, red bull
Red eyes, red tale, red blanket

Blue glass, blue beret, blue ocean
Blue waves, blue reflection, blue birds

Orange glass, orange cap, orange sun
Orange beams, orange light, orange hell.

Green glass, green band, green grass
Green dew, green hair, green trees

Remote Control

Remote control, follow buttons
Flash some light, control you
“La”, sing, dance, cats, peacock, LP videos
Movies, “Avatar”, blue ocean, waves, water
Drink, juice, hydrate, “Help” drowning, ship
DIE

Help Me

Blue Glass

Bue glass glinting in light;
Holding water; catching sight.

Telephone

My telephone, a snake
Curls around every wire
Threatens to ring
Hisses everyday
Sleeps at night
