Waxing poetic on the refrigerator

Everyone's seen them, those magnetic word sets for the refrigerator that you use to make poems, sentences, or anything that suits your fancy. We have a set on our refrigerator and I'd like to share the inspiration that overcame the word-artistes in our family. I only wish I knew which child composed which saying or phrase.

I do know that I started it all with the following poem. (All the '/' you see denote the use of a separate letter.)


a symphony of languid moan/s
dream/y in their mean/ing
no frantic moment/s I will have
drunk in my garden play/ing

Now here are the rest of the works.

please smear only luscious chocolate lather

fluff still think/s like his puppy

eat then swim in honey

y not fall from my death

peach/es can sea my shadow

the blue milk is gone

rock these shake/ing gorgeous pink butt/s

purple sordid juice incubate/s

crush winter with ugly finger/s

why leave a man when his enormous apparatus fiddle/s a beauty/ful woman

worship a moon

after skin would white wind cry

you tell spring to iron rain

lie on her drool & you/r tongue will chant red flood/ed goddess

take not but stare at the bitter language

life shot the boy

I have black mist/ed dress/es heave in sweat

rob a gift club and lust repulsive/ly

lick raw meat & like it

i egg/ed pound/s
