Anne Marie Brown


Date Night

It would improve
my husband’s mood
if sushi weren’t
my favorite food.

Maybe I should pitch this query:
I will trade nookie
for nigiri.

Facts of Life

A whale’s tongue weighs as much as an elephant.
Nobody knows where the dinosaurs went.
Your foot’s the length of elbow to wrist.
The sky is blue. I’m glad you exist.
