the cutest poem in the world

yoga mat hedgehog
he’s so neat and tidy
he’s rolling it away
for another day

alas, his legs are short
for doing downward dog
but he can do child pose
better than anyone

yoga mat hedgehog
loves pranayama
puffing out his chest
adds flair to his quills

alas, his back’s uncomfy
for doing shavasana
but who said he can’t relax
on his little belly instead

Hedgehog

blowing horn

shadows played out on the wall of days
sand hissed from the dead giant’s ear
i did its mind like a line of cocaine
(blood of the polterchrist compelled me)
then a unicorn defied what we thought we knew
wrecked itself on all we’d formerly eschewed
