A poem- the beautiful house full of cockroaches

My first poem at Columbia Summer Program. That’s why the lines are a tad sleep-deprived, sappy… aw shucks.

I do not like strawberries.

They are red and beautiful.


I like apples.

They are red but not red but green and have holes.


I do not like debating.

It is like riding a shooting star.


I like writing.

It is like sweeping brown leaves, and the smell of roasted chestnuts.


I do not like perfection.

It is like a glass ice-cream.


I like life.

It is like a beautiful house full of cockroaches.

    1. Aww thank you! Glass ice-cream is indeed a disaster if you’re a foodie. 🙂
