If Toddlers Wrote Haikus

A bowl of pasta
Must wash my hair with the sauce

Mommy's new iPhone
Sinks in the potty water
Mommy shouts bad words

In my open mouth
Doggie's crunchy brown kibble
Mommy's finger gags

My sister's long hair
I yank and pull big handfuls
She cries, I giggle

MINE I say and hit
MINE no one is listening
MINE I shout louder

Spoons are not for me
I will eat only with hands
Spoons will be thrown down

I find the markers
The wall is a blank canvas
Permanent artwork
