Three Poems
by Melanie Browne

Plastic wine glasses suck

I.

My hubby bought some
Plastic wine glasses
Because he was tired
Of glass ones
Breaking on
Ceramic tile

Theres something depressing
About a wine glass made
Of plastic

It makes a funny sound
When you tap it

And is nearly impossible
To get clean
In the
Dishwasher
(Even if you use
A rinse aid)

II.

But it's a lot better
then drinking
Wine
Out of a John Deere
tractor
Coffee mug

III.

Which I did a couple
of months ago



powers

I took an inventory of
My powers
On the
Dungeons and
dragons Sheet that
I found in
The back of
our closet


I had to write
N/A
On a lot of them
Because I had no idea
What the hell
They were talking about


And I stuck some
Four sided dice in
My bra for luck
And cooked
you some pancakes



That's a spicy meatball (things that fizz)

I always thought the
Aztecs were kind of sexy

They were really into
Body piercings
and cutting
before those things
were really cool

I read somewhere that
They invented our
Modern day
Alka Seltzer

It happened
During a sacrifice
To
Ometotchtli

Which makes sense
Because he was the
God of drunkenness

After that
He
Was known
As
The
Great
