sizzle, sizzle, flip,
flop onto my plate,
into my belly by way of fork
and assisted by butter knife.
passed by player twelve and forty-seven.
the field is ceramic and white
with puddles of syrup.

one very wonderful chocolate doughnut
glazed with a sugar compound
and carefully aged→for 38 minutes←on my window sill
cold and soft with a crispy sugary shell
chocolate doughnut, I love you
you love me, I eat you
and you do not love me anymore

pizza can so be a breakfast food if it's cold! don't
fool me, don't battle me. i'll eat what i want, he
ain't got no butta! i saw a sign on a bus that told
me the best thing for breakfast is a nicotine patch.
i do not believe this. i believe that pizza is a much
wiser choice. i am composing this, i am composing
this on mary's computer, i should ask mary if she'd
ever eat pizza for breakfast..."only cold pizza for
breakfast" i am so good.

i picked a daffodil
and gave it to Dina.
she ate it.
i don't know how nutritious a yellow
flower really is but i wouldn't think
to eat one for breakfast
though it was evening when she ate it,
so i guess it’s not the same.

NOT ORANGE JUICE
spunky orange drink a citrusy blend of citrus fruits
enhances with vitamins A, C, D, and E
for your ever growing mind child.
A cartoon drink in a slipper glass.
Refill, half-full, with a little
extra fun on the top… the stuff that stays on your lips.

[ODE TO] WAFFLE OFF
when them nasty waffles start gettin' to ya
spray'em with some waffle off
then they'll start keelin' over right before yer very eyes
one or two might land in a sticky puddle
of vermont made maple syrup
that's been carried south by the clouds and wind
then some soulless squirrels with forks
of all different shapes and size
some two pronged, some three or four pronged
and they'll start munchin' on the nasty waffles
that you got dead with yer waffle off
[available in convenient pocket sized cans
as well as family sized and standard sized cans]

one bowl of cheerios
laced with fine white—sunk to the bottom—
O's of grains
loitering in a plastic bowl
sopping up 2% milk
and swallowed whole by a giant.

there once was a fork from the Malookas [though you'll have
to ask rohrer about that place, i've never been myself] that
glowed like a dog's collar. i ate with it once, what a
wonderful date, we had breakfast together, the fork and i.
the thing was, however, that the fork became extremely
offended when i picked up another fork to eat my eggs, and
so i had to use only a spoon. the fork hardly ate a thing.
the breakfast was great [thanks for the free refills of
decaffeinated coffee]. after the meal the fork and i went
back to my place. nothing happened. the fork just kept
on glowing; never took it off.

there's a giant bee in my room
he's trying to get out but he can't find
the little hole he came in from
so i put the last of my tea on the ledge
for my friend [the bee] to drink
he played around the edge of the cup
for a minute or two
but i guess he doesn't really care
for raspberry flavored tea.

English muffin or toast--
the whole point is the jam.
orange, purple or red?
it all just goops on... sticking
