Mardi Gras Chihuahua
by Jeffrey Pipes Guice

My name is Boudreaux and I’m a Mardi Gras Chihuahua...
I live in Uptown New Orleans and I have friends all over the world...
They think that I am lucky to live in New Orleans...
Because the king cake is tasty and the Mardi Gras season seems to last forever...

My friends come to visit at the same time every year...
We like to wear costumes and dress up real crazy...
We look so cute and have our pictures taken by people...

As if catapulted—

A rabbit darts across our path
And murder fills his heart,

Friend left behind....
by Aryan Bhardwaj

Once, I was passing by
an old post office about to die
and saw a dog who was shy

the dog made a very appealing cry,
from his little black glowing eyes

It was such a strange feeling...
was happy to have a friend like him
but sad for the person who left him

A Love of Nature
by Jeffrey Pipes Guice

Purple mountain
majesties...
A farm dog’s life
is full of highs...
When the butterfly
lands squarely on his nose...
From a cloud up above
the clear blue skies...

Nature is
