Bad Dream

June 13, 2011

This obviously is not a drawing, however the poem was inspired by this picture, and my friend, Abby.



Abby's Rupert



i dreamt that Rupert

was cheating because…

the angry-sad tears soaking his stuffing

has seeped to his core…

the corner-under-cover-cowering has

dampened his brightly stitched smile…

the terrifying dark secrets shared in

cold, anguished desperation have

killed the fire in his once soulful- glass eyes…

and he, in his own agony, from his pittance

in these heart wrenching motions…

needed a teddy bear of his own…










  1. This is quite sad and scary! But beautifully written, I particularly like the “once-soulful’ glass eyes”
