Matt Rouse (2 poems)

THE WISDOM OF BONNIE (AGE 7)

If you drink from the tap,
you’ll grow three heads.

THE WISDOM OF LOIS (AGE 8)

Never stand in front of a Pikachu
with a cold.

 

When Matt Rouse writes poetry, the voices in his head stop shouting.

Matt Rouse

Fallen Heroes

She threw her
Captain America towel
down dramatically
at the edge
before she cannonballed
into the pool
and now she won’t stop complaining
that she is cold.

Matt Rouse lives in Orange County and likes writing one sentence poems because they appear to work well with his ADHD.
