Alice and the door. Wood of hallway mouth. Come and go, go there to other.
Greet days of tokens that go, away. Type the write of it. Desk the way to thought of chair and desk, Alice and hand.
Oak. Oak the way to Alice. Fro and for.
Chocolate is. Color brindle barn, silent the waft.
Smile chocolate of kitchen, orange stain the bowl.
The bowl brindle; chocolate fine and feeling, cat nips at cream for dream.

In the Imaginary Garden With Real Toads, we are conjuring Gertrude Stein. Does it all make a bit of sense now? I sort of hope not! Amy

Oh, Amy, these are WONDERFUL! I especially adore “wood of hallway mouth” and “Type the write of it.” And who couldn’t love the word “brindle?” 🙂

Very interesting take Amelita! It really brings poetry to a higher level. Steinisms can go many directions. It gives way to a poet’s free mind1

LOL, I was thinking about Halloween and how kids egg houses… and how glad no one in my neighborhood has made the connection at Easter. But then, those would be hard-boiled eggs, right? Amy (wink)

Super super clever. Very well done, Amy–very Stein-like–but also very much you, and vivid and lively. Thanks! k .

“Type the write of it. Desk the way to thought of chair and desk”
Wonderful, Amy. And I’ll take chocolate under any genre : )
