Matt Roberts With Poems

 

matt-1

Halt your left foot on one shore,
your right foot on another.
Run the red ferry.

 

matt-2

Exchange a tree for someone saying tree.
Exchange someone saying tree for someone laughing.
Exchange someone laughing for a small breeze.

 

matt3

Cry with one eye
(moon through rain).
EEEE says the eye chart.

 

matt-4

Use a coin
to pick something up.

 

matt-5

Rub a map with a sponge.

 

matt-6

Ask a stranger
2 ways to a river.

matt-7

Dangle a hose between your legs.
You’ve already killed one tree this way.

 

matt8

Swallow a ribbon until it strangles itself.

 

matt-9

Each time you drop something,
swallow your spit.
