Three Poems

by Kyle Harvey


For Rye

Why, when you sneeze,

you ask, do you say achoo?


Well I suppose, I say,

I wasn’t sure what else to say


it’s just always been

the hip thing to do.


Wait, wait, I’m afraid, you say,

you may be a bit too late.


That is no longer what

the cool cats say.

It’s now




Even Four Year Olds

Argue With Themselves

For Paige


She says,

No, no, no!

Not kwag!

It’s dog fog.

Not nut!



Veronica, pregnant


tried to swim


kept rolling over

and floating

to the top

like a                    bobber.
