Aunt Lorna’s Kisses by Elizabeth Honey

Standard

Aunt Lorna kisses into space

near your ear, not on your face.

I don’t call that kissing

I call that missing.

Sophie’s Secrets by Elizabeth Honey

Standard

Sophie keeps her secrets

in a secret box

with dozen of chains

with invisible locks.

But when you find the box

and sneak a look in there,

they might be secrets

but they look like air.

Stick-Crazy Dog by Elizabeth Honey

Standard

Stick-crazy dog, stick-crazy dog

would catch a boomerang in a fog

would catch a javelin in flight

would catch a falling star at night

would catch a match that’s still on fire

would catch a bus, or I’m a liar.
