Aquarius (Feb 21, 2006)
When the whimsical Dr. Seuss quipped, “There is no one alive who is Youer than You,” he most certainly was talking about an Aquarius. Your originality is even more original tonight.

I’ve always been vanilla.
I’ve always been soft mashed potatoes.
I’m a pillow of marshmallow.
It’s only when I write a poem
that vanilla turns into Chunky Monkey,
Cherry Garcia, & New York Super Fudge Chunk.
And those potatoes
with garlic and cheese
and that marshmallow
is on a stick
being cooked over a fire
and it’s flaming.
