Poems of the Week


by Julia Griffin

“A man brought a llama in a tuxedo to his sister’s wedding,
and the photo of her unamused expression is going viral.”


A man conveyed me to his sister’s wedding
In a tuxedo, much to my surprise.
I felt so awkward I could not stop shedding:
It wasn’t just the error in the size.

The photo of my unamused expression
Is going viral. Why should that perplex?
Before you have a costumed photo session
With llamas, kindly ask about our sex.
