Jealous

Jealous looks like two aliens

looking for their mortal prey.

Jealous sounds like five ants

marching down the hill to look for fungus.

Jealous smells like toilet water

rushing down the drain.

Jealous tastes like spaghetti sauce

running into the spaghetti.

Jealous feels like a brick of lead.

Jealous moves like a dozen snakes

slithering into the dust.

-Serena, Age 9
