Do you ever look at objects and notice a face? This phenomenon is called pareidolia. I enjoy creating characters out of the faces I see. Illustrating them and writing a poem bringing the character to life.
Here are a few characters.
Grab my beak if it’s laundry you seek. You barely see me, maybe once a week. How can I not have this disappointed look? I dry your clothes as you read a book. I’m dryer duck, and for a buck, I dry the shirts you tuck. Handle my bill if you will, tweak left for your garments. I’ll see you next week, but please, no more vomit.
I'm a dandy dapper dampener.
Fires tickle my fancy, those are no match for me.
Remove my monocle you must, for the water to flee.
When it comes to parking, I know I'm a nuisance
But when your dog pees, I'm somehow translucent.
I'm a damn dampened hydrant.
I'm Ellie D, the amphibious illuminator.
The frog that toggles on during a power failure.
I'm not green like Kermit, and I don't tell jokes
But, keep me in mind next time the electric croaks.
I’m ripe. Teeth rotten. My other half, forgotten. This crescent face is only recent. But not to panic, by botanic rules my seeds will sprout. More tomatoes to creep you out. Though there will be none like me, I’m one of a kind, you won’t find me in a bottle of Heinz
Hey dere, you notice my teef missin'
But I'm just like you, I talk and listen
My inner's calm, yet I'm lookin' crazy
Push my teef when you're feelin' lazy
