from BEFORE THE MATCH
by Bree

I want to get cursed
And not care
I want to be chosen
And refuse

from WHAT KIND OF BIRTHDAY
BASEBALL SHIP IS THIS?
by Andrew Boerum

This is a great birthday ship
you told me to sail around in
But you didn’t mention anything
about baseball

Will there be baseball there
on the birthday ship? Or where
the ship will eventually dock…
will there be baseball there
too?

Also, even though this is a
great birthday ship you’re
telling me about I need to know
several things before I agree
to accept it

from EARTH IS HORIZON, HEAVEN
IS HEIGHT
by George Wallace

i am a cutout pilgrim boy. you
are a cutout pilgrim girl. i am
holding a cardboard blunderbuss
and wearing a stovepipe hat and
a shiny buckle is on it. you are
wearing a white apron and have a
white bonnet and one loose
string is falling from it.
