EMERSON HAS A NEW BABY DOLL

Her name is Crispy.
She is small, pink, and plastic.
Tilt her back: eyes close.

WHAT EMERSON SAID THE OTHER DAY

You get hamburgers
first, then I’ll make toovalroo (sic),
then the cherry melts.

JOANNA IN THE BATH

She likes to narrate:
“Wash knee. Wash knee. Wash toes; toes.
Wash chin, wash tummy.”

JOANNA HAS A SENSE OF HUMOR

Or maybe she’s just
being nice. Say something dumb,
she laughs way too hard.
Teeth shining, she says Funny.
