Dear Audrey By Hannah Gerber

If you can make a lion out of a paper plate

and construction paper

and I can conjure up

food in the shapes of cartoon characters

then maybe together

we can fly.

If your right, and dogs can talk

if they want to, and ducks can

live on American cheese and


if it is indeed true

that over the wall there lives a tiger

and an elephant both diminutive enough

to fit in the small of our hands,

well, maybe you and I together

can be invisible and follow

daddy where he goes.

Move his french fries out of reach,

tug on his tie

and whisper kitty sounds into

his ears,

And then maybe Tuesday

we can go to the zoo.
