Vinyl Transfers

I like the mp3's with the crackles
The one's that jump and skip
They sometimes sound nicest
When the speakers are off

When you open Media Player
You can't watch them spin
They have this strange way
That they keep going

They don't come in megabytes
They have multiple values
And you still have to wait to see
What's on side 2

Cherry Socks

Raised on a diet of Roger McGough,
Cherry pop
And odd socks
I chose books
Over tooth decay and funny looks

To Bee or Not to Bee

Writing sometimes-poems
That are too short to read
Designed for bus trips
And busy bees
My short stories
Never got off their feet
But at least I'm keeping
The bees happy

Cats and Bats

Bats are all black
And they have ears
They can hear things
When it's dark
Their hearts are in the right place
Cats aren't just lazy in books
And caterpillars
Really do like trees
