Tripping Through the Alphabet

A

Angie

offered me gum in class, said it’d help me concentrate. I don’t know what she meant by that, but now I’m seeing shapes.

B

Babies

look like bottles.

C

Curtains

look like capes.

D

Don't

get me started on the dog, I thought he was a snake.

E

Everyone

is looking at me, I wonder if they know? I stepped outside for fresher air, and laid on the patio.

F

For

a moment I thought the ferns were talking, but there’s no way that could be.

G

Grandma's

gown looks like a cloak.

H

Her

hair is stringy cheese.

I

I

need to call my optometrist, I think my eyes are broken. I looked up expecting to see the sky, instead I saw the ocean.

J

Just

a few more minutes until I’m home.

K

Kids

are playing in the street.

L

Lazarus

my neighbor’s son, his toes turned to clown feet.

M

My

map says that I took the wrong turn. Makes sense, all things considered.

N

Never

did I think I’d see a squirrel look like my sister.

O

On

the opposite side of the road, I notice a cafe is serving omelets.

P

Perhaps

I’ll take a peek inside, I’m so hungry I could vomit.

Q

Quinn

is my name, and I’ll be serving you today. Can I start you off with water?

R

Right

when she spoke, I nearly choked. Her head was getting smaller.

S

Some

scrambled eggs, just grew some legs, and walked away from me.

T

That's

when I saw the taco sauce, I thought it was iced tea.

U

Unable

to eat, I run back home.

V

Vacant

lots are filled with sheep.

W

Which

hand’s my right? Which hand’s my left?

X

Exactly

what’s an NFT?

Y

You

know who called me? Angie from class. She asked how was the treat.

Z

ZZZ

I didn’t know what else to say besides ‘I need some sleep.’

Please, just take me home!
