Freemont Poems

As part of Dave Barry's blog's "the dog ate mother's toes" Freemont initiative, Judith Laura pseudonymously posted  following two poems on poetry.com in July 2003:

Family Frolic 

Slowly, I mounted the steps, filled with pride by the scene unfolding on the lawn below where
the family gathered, giggling, prodding each other, as the dog ate mother's toes. Then my brother Fred started
up the barbecue; we were hungry too.

Freemont X Ash (Judith Laura) 

Death Is Not Death
 

Death is not death.
The Moon's not the moon.
I'll tell you your fortune
If you sing me a toon.

The Hierophant pants with fetid breath.
The Queen of Swords chooses to live alone.
First the dog chomped the Fool's bright clothes
Then the dog ate sweet mother's toes.
