Best Poem of Alek Lenth

Dogs Die

And they kill.

The first dog's
face looms as
large as a dragon's.

With her mouth
she presents a
ball and when
it touches your
face it is wet.

Wolves come one
night and tear
apart her sides.

She looks like
wet feathers:
wet-red feathers.

When she is
stitched, she
is shaved like
a bird and
the stitches
heal like scales.

One sunny day
we go to
the beach but
leave the dragon
on her chain.

She hangs herself from it.
I see flies eat
the eyes of a dragon.

The second dog ...

Read the full of Dogs Die

Some Gnome Cloud

Lightnings, and it thunders

The gods delight by knowing
people beneath them cow

Yet they are baffled by the blunder
of a very wicked wonder
Who ignores their warning stripes
of white-iron cast as nets
