I had a dream (nightmare) that I had a kid and he had birth defects. He was shaped like a ballpoint pen and had the voice of Marcel the Shell. I tried to raise him, but my dad sat there watching me and got frustrated. He took the child and started taking care of him. He said, "Who taught you how to raise a kid?" And I said, "You!"

At the zoo

You might see lions.

I prefer trees. Some choked by thorns. Others like vines climb walls. The best grow vines for chimps like swings. Ropes like stairs. Shouts like croaks. Faces hopeful flowers.
