Anyway, she came to show me a special box she has put it in, saying, ‘The tooth fairy will come and see, “My first tooth”, on the box, and then she’ll open it and she’ll take it and put it in her tooth castle and then she’ll come back and give me five thousand Rand, and then I’ll use that to win the Lotto, and then we can go to Disneyland. And I’ll buy a castle.’ I quickly jotted this down verbatim. You will note that she doesn’t exactly think small. (She seemed to say it all in one breath, too!)
Another variation on this theme, with pictures not my own:
If in Circus
Fleas are workers,
Carts they tow are, in the main, meant
As a flea-t’ing entertainment.
And a haiku for the Foam (for Michael) theme of “What do you see when you close your eyes at night?”
Review of writing:
Thoughts run deep, and block out sleep –
Far too exciting!
