Two Poems By Sean Cho Ayres

Dream House #4
The snowman knows
the shortness of
February and doesn’t
want to be a puddle
but finds wonder
thinking about his peddle-eyes skipping across the pond. The
pond is excited

to be a pond again, to
steal sun rays, and hide
frog eggs. Hates it’s
frozen-form how it stops
the hearts of trouts, and
humans slip on its slicked skin.

just kidding, ponds
can’t think, you, silly
goose,
warm-feather-bodied,
creature, fly across
the country sunlight
seeker

are you
excited to
come home?

Dream House #1
cat A says to cat B
let’s get out of here
B says Meow The two
cats look down
from the tree branch
it’s too high to jump
says A B looks down
aren’t you afraid
you’ll get hurt says
A Meow says B then
B jumps and lands
on his feet (of course)
Cat A not knowing
he too is a cat
stays in the tree
then tomorrow
then tomorrow
then tomeowow
