Week of June 4 / by Katelyn Halpern

This week, I’m starting to share work about once a week. Here’s a poem I made in the recent past.

What To Do (or How to Do It)

Carry your dog like a baby
Carry your baby like a watermelon or a loaf of bread
Don't carry your own watermelons and bread; get someone else to do that

Put your baby on a leash and put the dog in a stroller
Put your baby in a motorized car and your dog on a drone
Are you getting all this?

Put the baby on your tongue
Put the dog's tongue inside your own mouth
And remember to rinse and spit before you kiss the baby
