The pages were white and felt dry and crinkly. They didn’t know if they would ever see the light of day again; they had been put back on the shelf a few days ago. They were good pages and had been there for many people, whenever they wanted them. So, the book decided to send out reading vibes to whoever walked by it, hoping to be picked up once again. Day in and day out, vibes were sent. Now the pages are under a lamp, left to be read, happily free again.
Once upon a time there was a ball of lint he thought himself complete stuck to an old spearmint he spent his whole long day in a coat pocket make of silk Picking up new fragments like cold cereal soaked in milk. He thought that on day he’d go rolling in the sun But darkness in the pocket Was his only kind of fun.
The Cat in the Hat and the Lorax too sat with the guy who invented it all today was his day and when he arrived everyone laughed and they had a great ball. They ate cake and ice cream, Heavenly Hash, popcorn, salty chips and soda galore Seuss was encouraged by the attention Happy to know they didn’t think him a bore. Singing loud and with all the effect this whole party was getting real fun when it was over and day turned to night they all realized the party was done.
‘I knew I should never have watched that old science fiction movie right after listening to all me old ’60’s albums. That dream I had last night was the bomb.’
‘O.K.,’ Beechwood said. ‘Let’s hear it.’
Ardmore went on to explain.
‘I was in a harsh Oriental jungle, surrounded by killer butterflies and elephants.’
‘Just when I thought I had found a welcome respite from it all, they ate some (ahem, shall we say?) tainted marshmallows and transformed into a hybrid creature, more virulent, more destructive than anyone could even so much as begin to imagine.’
‘Wow!’ Beechwood said obligingly. ‘I told you not to go too crazy, man.’
I got paid in peanuts to become this innovative and exploratory in nature form of art, but I happen to like peanuts. The artist has this thing for butterflies, and he said that it will probably wash off in a week, so I said what the hell and went along with it. I am getting kind of old now and my skin is all wrinkled, but with these colorful ears, nobody is looking at my wrinkles anymore. I am thinking that if I flap my ears fast enough that I might be able to fly. My body is relatively aerodynamic for that of a land animal, but if I did start flying around, they would probably put me in a circus. I weigh a heck of a lot more than any bird, and although my body has adapted to my weight, my ears would have to be a whole lot…

The procedure to correct and reduce Dumbos massive ears to prevent him from warning circuses around the world about the terrible duo, has gone awry. Dr. Putinup and his trusted assistant Trumpit, strove to put down all resistance supporting the little elephants right to flight and freedom by garnering the likes of Turn-the-other-way-ary and the ever shadowy figure of the increasingly unpopular Polanites.
Upon removal of the little elephants bandages, surgeons and politicians all were shocked and stunned to find their efforts were in fact, in vain when these magnificent butterfly ears emerged and the proud little elephant asserted his independence by flapping his new wings and hopping right over the indignant and horrified faces of both Putinup and Trumpit and their staunch contingent of disbelieving miscreants.
Am I dreamin’ Before me stands a lovely imaginary vision An elephant wearin’ monarch butterfly ears No, tis some artist’s vivid picturesque creation A mammal and an insect sharers same ecosystem Single similarity betwixt them both members of animal kingdom If local zoo raised its’ admission price, friend would you pay extra for the chance opportunity to snap a picture of a two-to-seven-ton elephant parading around with monarch butterfly ears, wingspan three to four inches. I guess my answer would be affirmative only I have a gut feeling this is another photoshop picture.
The black-market lab was at it again. They had been completing genetic experiments for ten years. Most of their “creations” were huge failures. Often the creatures died shortly after birth.
The gestation for the latest project was the longest they had ever dealt with. After 22 months of anxious waiting, the calf was born. It seemed perfectly normal at birth. There were a few anomalies after a few months though. The ears curled up and crusted over. The calf was then rejected by its mother and needed to be bottle fed. It was decided to not intervene with whatever might occur to the strange ears. The elephant hid on the compound for months. When it reappeared, it had the most glorious ears ever seen.
