A trail of sugar…
happy ants crawling along:
Anteater waiting…

   with no real destination
   the anteater wakes

Premium Member Knowing Nods
The ants nodded knowingly to each other
   A honey-pot overturned
      ~ Anteater licked his lips...

          The anteater
          gets to
          stick out
          its tongue...
          What fun!...

Premium Member A Dainty Flower I Would Be
If a dainty pink flower I would be,
I would choose the delicate peony.
Anteater friendly,
Really bendy,
Encouraging him to lick ants off me.

Premium Member Anteater Gibbon and Kangaroo Too
Anteater’s ideas are absolute.
Buff-cheeked gibbon gives them a toot.
Tree kangaroo throws down a shoot.
Peacock pheasant gives them the boot.
I run away with all of their loot.
I am kind of a robber galoot.

Spiky hair.
spiny anteater

Grow up prickly.
Grow up quick.
They raze -
rib dig.

Hurts in his alphabet soup.
Jeers jar.
quills quiver.

Curled up,
face tucked
into heart.

The Aardvark and the Pangolin
The Aardvark and the Pangolin,
Romantically, had been entwined.
But infidelity, was in the air,
Aardvark, had a new suiter in mind.

Pangolin, did challenge his rival,
The Anteater with beautiful snout.
Don’t fear for me, on your betrayal,
Sweet Armadillo, is taking me out.

It Was In My Mouth
I felt her gaze upon me
With unavoidable bright eyes
Her adoration made me smile
She is so innocent, yet so wise

I swooped her up and held her close
That's when it all went south
With the speed of an anteater
My dog Pixies tongue was in my mouth!

Her mouth may be cleaner than mine
That didn't dampen my chagrin
Because I forgot, and licked my lips
Even knowing where that tongue had been!...

Spiky hair, brittle waves, porcupine, hedgehog, spiny Anteater, echidna. A kid growing up prickly. The long tongues of children gibe him sharp. Tumbleweed in the schoolyard. Can’t tread him down. Hurts are on the surface like frozen alphabet spaghetti. Thorns and barbs, jagged Jeers, quills quietly quivering the quarry - face tucked into his heart.

Premium Member Suzie Q Anteater and Ms Gerbil
Mrs. Suzie Q. Anteater will take the lead, Ms. Gerbil said.
If I try to take over she might thump me hard on the head.
We did not know what she was talking about, what did she know?
We saw them parading down to town, going kind of ploddish and slow.

I told you she’d take over, Ms. Gerbil’s eyes seemed to say.
This made us laugh a little bit into our hankies that day.
Mrs. Suzie Q. Anteater is the mother of eight or nine.
You’d best do what she says and stand straight in her line.
