  1. Jump Kick Bite

    Fly from a funny game fox
    here, give him high jumps
    kicks may try me
    but if they like the train
    would you come
    last little playthings

    Some kind of hit toy
    her tricks made him
    jump ship–why not
    nothing about big books
    or his hands
    all about
    mother’s kind wish

  2. Say Something

    Playthings, mess
    Jumps
    Shake, thump, kicks
    Fear
    Hands hold
    Dark games shame
    Tame mouse,
    She should run away
    Would not
    Could not
    Now home is a box
    Deep and cold
    Near her mother’s bed

  3. Pandora

    The Green Fox, the Pink Fox, the White Fox, the Red Fox
    sat with the Trick-Show Cat with his fan in his hat
    in the house in the dark of the Sunny Shine Wood

    us we want was way we well went were wet what when who why will wish their wish be made that they may find:

    The Green Fox Box which may be in the bed on the train
    The Pink Fox Box put on the top of a tree
    The White Fox Box that was let fly in the rain
    The Red Fox Box nothing can see

    Which box would you take
    by book and by hook?

    What will you say
    after May should you look?
    in to the cold deep dark box
    picked from a Sunny Shine fox

  4. Sunny strings

    I
    am
    a cat–
    I come and go.
    No box or hand can hold me
    No wall too high
    I jump
    like nothing
    My tail tip thumps–
    a mouse
    a string
    a toy–
    why yes, you can play, too

  5. the last green eggs

    fishgreen eggs in a bent cup for the goatman who picked up the book of shut-away things with hands that shake and yes yes he can see it all now / milkgreen eggs on a milkwhite dish for the little boatboy to pack in his mouse box and take with him on a trip in a tall ship to anywhere maybe to nowhere / treegreen eggs sank deep in the wet wood for those who sit in the dark and hear sad strings who see the red kite fly in the sun and who know the way home / darkgreen eggs on a pothook for the last one shut in the dark house with her foxhead on in her mother’s red ballgown her cat on a string she is lit from within / flygreen eggs for the fast ones who run high on the beat and the trip of it all who kick at the fear and bite away shame and come to bed last with their makeup on / the last green eggs in a net too high like a trick or a game to mess with our mind so make a good wish and shake at the tree we can let them fly we can see them fall these are the last green eggs of all
