One million onions are

Like permanent ink

Unchanging, however far

 You go but still think

Of where they came from. On the brink

Of nostalgia but not quite

You’re still floating, but learning to sink

The sun can illuminate both with his light

And both can be shrouded in darkness come night


Tiresome Perplexities

One million onions can be

Compared to, of all things

Shoes. But for babies.

Quite pointless, the bell tolls. Doesn’t ring.

Sometimes it’s hard to even begin

To think why an infant would ever need shoes

“Ten to the sixth power onions!” they sing

They came to the funeral. Paid all their dues.

If you followed this through, then it’s true I’m confused


A Hymn for Him

I’ve come to see I have a paper heart

And now I’ve also realized

There is a subtle kind of art

 To talking using just our eyes

That life is more than hate and lies

But one million onions

Enhancing, though they make you cry

You must open your chest for the love to pour in

And open your mind, for that’s how it begins



There’s a full moon in the night sky

Like that one time

When the clouds stopped by

They were out of line

Like prison bars that don’t confine

His spirit, now he’s set it free

To go forth and define

What his eyes couldn’t see

That all he wanted was just to be

    Aubin+Awesome’s “Onions” I thought brilliant. Has this
    young person had any other work published?

      I know, isn’t she something? I’m not sure if she has any publications, but I’ll check with her. Thanks for commenting!
