Here’s her poem “Queer Little Thingy” that got published:
A foolish little girl wished for a “queer little tingy”
She turned up her nose against all the fancies and the nannies
Because determination flared like an unflinching gaze in her eyes
And so, in the middle of the night, she tinkered on her clever scheme with her tongue tipped ever so slightly to the corner
On the night of December the third
She stole into a big fat ship with her big fat ego
To haul a big fat anchor into a big fat sky
“it gripped a poor innocent star,” whispered wild campers in the middle of the night
“and the little predator climbed for her little prey”
This “stubborn ass” persisted hour after hour as she climbed with her bruised hand and heart
But alas! how could anyone see it coming?
When the first ray of sunlight hit the earth
the queer little thingy turned out to be a snake as it shed its skin into the sky
and she plunged into the ocean with a flailing hand and heart
So heavy hung the ferocity of betrayal and remorse
that when she fell
she ripped a hole into the ocean
and lost herself in its hurricane.
