Inkless Poems




Illustration by Elizabeth Bushey

Prismacolor markers on bristol board

Meet My Dog

Meet my dog
He’s not too smart
He drives me around
In a shopping cart.

He does my homework
But gets it wrong
Forgets the words
To my favorite song

He burns the toast
At breakfast time
He writes me poems
But they don’t rhyme

He loves me, though
He gets that right
We sleep together
Every night

That big dumb dog
I love him, see
We all screw up
Yup – even me.
