Tide Pods

If there was one thing inedible I could taste, it would probably be Tide Pods. You know, the little plastic packages containing laundry detergent. I know, I know, you’re probably thinking, “Aren’t those toxic chemicals that you shouldn’t put in your body?” and yes. Yes they are.

Remember that trend around 2016, the Tide Pod challenge? If you don’t, teenagers all over the country were videoing themselves eating the inedibly delicious morsels, and posting them on the internet. I remember having to agree with people saying that it was dumb, or irresponsible, but now, I’m speaking my truth. I understand the craze around the little things. Even though I never participated in the trend, and I’ve never once eaten a Tide Pod, I think, no, I know that it would taste fruity, and the texture would be almost like jelly. Anyways, that’s my take on things that I shouldn’t eat, things that I shouldn’t want to eat, and things that I really want to eat.

    As I stand atop the Ark
    I wonder Why

    Why does the Sun rise?
    Why does it set?

    And while I hear the sounds
    of elephant families trumpeting

    And while I watch the gnus
    sprinting through the watering hole

    It all
  • him.

    His little freckles
    That match the brown specs in his eyes

    His bright red backpack
    Making him stand out from the rest of the crowd

    His beat up sneakers
    Covered in holes

    His soft, calm voice
