“Four Poems” by Dan Nielsen

“DEEPLY SUPERFICIAL”

She asked, “Why do you love me—
Is it my shape, or face?”
I said, “You’ve got me wrong;
What turns me on,
Are your quirks and traits.”

“MOM”

She’s supportive, though pessimistic,
And often gives this advice,
“It’s never to late to get started,”
Though you’ll never get done in time.”

“JUNIOR HIGH”

Our teacher was Miss Givings,
A woman I adored;
And if I ever had Miss Givings
I certainly don’t anymore.

“SHOCKING”

I received shock therapy
For multiple personality.
It hurt like hell, and was no fun;
And now I don’t have even one.
