NEW POEMS FOR YOU TO ENJOY! Movie Stars 4/14/89 Movie stars, cars, and candy bars are words that closely and rightfully rhyme! I am a movie star who eats my candy bar in a car, but the car is not rightfully mine! I stole it, as you have seen, from Norma Jean! Who gave it to Cary Grant who sent it to Adam Ant! The rock star gave it to me, it is not rightfully mine as you can see. But who is to know if I'm telling a lie? For movie stars are more than often high. Many of them die in this very sad way, And they can no longer come out to play. I am left, alone, eating this candy bar in a car! For I am a rusty, retired, old movie star. by Danielle Raspberry Levin _____________________________________ Love Triangle Between Inanimate Objects 4/14/89 Joey, the typewriter, and Flowie, the telephone, met at a grocery store while taking a bite of the same juicy pear. Joey, the he, and Flowie, the she, moved into the same office and soon had a very tumultuous love affair. Mowie the shoe, the boss of the two, did not approve of their childish love. A typewriter and a telelphone are not a good couple, he learned from his mother, the glove. However, Joey made Flowie's body "ring-ring" a special word. And, Flowie made Joey's hand "print-print" everything he heard. Flowie was constantly calling Joey, whose tape was then alphabetized all day. Joey was constantly writing to Flowie, whose buttons were pressed in a numberized way. One fine day, Mowie got a crush on Flowie - Oh no! Joey, his lovesick foey, was too blinded by Flowie to see so!
Mowie, the shoe, tracked in some mud! He walked all over Joey with a big giant thud! The next day, Mowie made a footprint on Flowie's communicating heart! Her true dial tone had secretly been with her boss, right from the start! by Danielle Raspberry Levin ____________________________________________________ I am a Bird! 3/19/89

Writing catches my fancy. Though I am working on children's books and greeting cards, I also have a mad verve for poetry. Sometimes I call it Poe A Tree(after Edgar A. Poe). I like prose, flash fiction, and slam poets. I also like nonprofits. Thanks for reading and have a beautiful day!
