potatoes — Ethan Connor

i guess my favorite fruit is kiwi

not because of its taste

but because when you see something

round and brown

you’d never guess it’d be

green inside.

not white or yellow

there is nothing too special

about Idaho anyway

Nebraska has the same problem

minus tornadoes and ditch weed

five minutes in Omaha

i start praying for a

big ol’ twister to take me


maybe time moves

too slow for me

especially in Iowa

where like corn, i’m

going to detassle the hair

straight out of my head

if I don’t get my

annual trip to Indianapolis
