Dumpling Kaiser #1: Dumpling

I’ve been wanting to write a story

about a giant head that looks like

Britney Spears but tells people her name

is Dumpling Kaiser. I can work out

the science—well, the science fiction

that would let the giant head be seen

and heard by only one person, but

I can’t work out why the giant head

that goes by the name Dumpling Kaiser

but looks exactly like Britney Spears

would want people to see and hear her.

But Dumpling Kaiser certainly wants

to be seen and to be heard by me

because I haven’t tired of trying

to work out the giant head’s motive.

(Tomorrow: Dumpling Kaiser #2: Dumpling Rising)
