Answers… by Toni L.A. Cross

Dogs eat grass to cleanse themselves

Of internal impurities

The sky is blue

To make you ask why

A raven is like a writing desk

Because they can both bear doom

On their glossy backs

Globular clusters shine

To keep scientists humble

A basic ingrained desire

Longing for a person to love you forever

You eat too much spinach

Or green jelly-beans

Being cooped up makes any bull mad

And so does the color red

Lyrics are necessary to pin down the words

Hiding in musical depths

You are so tired because you aren’t sleeping

But are staring at this screen

Cats purr just to confuse dogs

And because they want to

And that is the answer

And that is the end

And now you’ll always know

My name is Toni Clegg, and I was raised on a farm in the far north of the United States. I love to read and write and I hope to use those hobbies in a greater way in the days to come. One of my passions is using whatever influence I have to make a difference in the world.
