Five Ways Of Looking At A Tissue Paper.

An offspring of a flexible tree.

A half of my body wants to go home,
The other wants to venture into the light.

Wrinkles are what I get when I break from my prison.

From a distance, I’m simple as a piece of paper,
Take a closer look and you’ll see my tissues.

A runny nose is my worst enemy.

And five ways of looking at a penny.

A dime living on the Miami Beach.

Craving to get out and take a shower.

Lost in the middle of nowhere, people glance at it and just pass by.

Where vandalism is practiced.

An amphibian creature that makes people’s wishes come true.
