Content warning:


Etymology, dictionaries, grammars
pertaining to plural formation:

one cowboy, too many cowboys,
one cowgirl, not enough cowgirls

one lone horseman riding into sunset,
four horsemen summoning apocalypse

one ox calmly yielding to two oxen
while sheep stubbornly remain sheep

mice not mouses, lice not louses,
but one goose begets more geese

and in place of meese or mooses
roam the remnants of the moose

just one last prickly conundrum:
is it cactus, cacti, or cactusses?



Mary Soon Lee was born and raised in London, but now lives in Pittsburgh. Her two latest books are from opposite ends of the poetry spectrum: Elemental Haiku, containing haiku for the periodic table (Ten Speed Press, 2019), and The Sign of the Dragon, an epic fantasy with Chinese elements (JABberwocky Literary Agency, 2020). After twenty-five years, her website has finally been updated: marysoonlee.com.

In my calculus class was a man in an iridescent polo and pigeon feathers in his dark, tangled hair.
