Today was the day
Finally got orange play-doh
In my coffee
Miss chief of mischief
Took the opportunity
While on the phone
Ordering wood and nails
And other things that exist
Underneath a house that I can’t fix.
The experiment lasted only a few minutes
The coffee splashed
Upon the wooden table.
Pried the sloppy orange goop
From her long little fingers.
Angry cry of the scientist
As the lab’s funding dries up.

Writing. Poetry. Personal Essays. On the NBA, MLB, media, journalism, culture, teaching and humor.
