2014 -- 6.2 (Spring) Poetry


By: Lindsay Victoria Peters

8 cups darkness, plain

3 ounces shuffling

6 quarts knocking, loudly

2 tablespoons whispering, repeat until softened

5 quick flashes of light

1 teaspoon slowly dripping water


Boil the shuffling until closer to you, then quickly shut it off and let it simmer on low.

Gently add in your knocking until it turns to a banging then run to the corner of your room.

Slowly mix in your darkness and whispering until you can’t take it anymore.

Stir in your dripping water and your quick flashes of light until you’re slowly shaking on the floor.

Bring it all to a boil, then let it cool off.

Yield: One horrible night sleep
