by Michael Goldstein

LEMBAS: I had a “for squares” joke, but I forgot it, so I’ll just say they look like tangrams.

LEMON: Don’t waste your life learning how to make lemonade out of oranges.

LETTUCE: Out of the egg of bitterness emerges hope.

LOBSTER: Verse by verse, we dissect the poem of its meat.

LOLLIPOP: The swirl is the ammonite of sweet gluttony.

LOTUS TREE: Sheep grown separately
