Story Time (written in the style of Ars Poetica)

Once upon a time I was a dragon
Who only ate raspberry jello-
On Tuesdays

The idea of that bores me
Like buying dvd’s does
Like selling old jeans does

Once upon a time I was a mole
The kind on your skin that get irritated by clothing

“you need to take responsibility for your actions”
“you need to practice following the recipe”

Once upon a time I was a chef
I could make people lose consciousness.

               With my baking.

“when do I get to play the role of child again?”
“when can I eat this raspberry cupcake?”

Once upon a time I was a reader
I read gum packages and nutrition labels
Before throwing them out the window of my car
to the birds.

Birds are nimble.

Yesterday I was a pink drinking cup
filled with ice
sweat seeping down my sides

Yesterday is actually today

Trust me.
