Two poems by Stephanie Smith

Two poems
by Stephanie Smith


Bagels leapt one by one
out of the bag
as her tongue lolled
and she hit the ground

She shook once
then stirred no more
as the bagels rolled down the hill

Bagels rolled everywhere,
escaping a nightmare
or searching for a grave



After having aborted
the idea of annihilation
the grasshopper decided
to don a pink dress
and go out for the evening
It mingled with artists
who sipped champagne
and talked about dance
and crucifixion
about addiction
and Armageddon
until the sun had risen
and the grasshopper
went home to bed
