FF Mischief Managed
Mischief Managed at the Ministry
It was Bring Your Child to Work Day: the bane of all easily bored children and a chance for parents in every department to show off their little bundle of joy.
Or bundles of mischief, as the case may be.
Arthur Weasley had warned the terrible twins to be on their best behavior. Although Arthur knew that their best would most likely result in a spectacular explosion of some kind.
Fred and George were tickled at the idea of accompanying their father to work. They were 7 and had never been to the Ministry.
The boys and all the other children accompanying their parents were taken through the guest entrance disguised as a telephone booth (where Fred told the courtesy witch that his name was George and George said that his name was Gertrude). Then it was into the Atrium where a lady who stood in front of the fountain handed out toy wands to the children to present to the Security Wiza
Red Riding HoodI want to believe people so badly when they say they won’t bite
that I contemplate climbing into their smiling jaws
thinking that it might be better to be split in two than left hanging.
But always, I draw my red hood and flit back into the forest
running in the shadows of pathways, never stepping into clearings
because I’ve spent my whole life in the wilderness
and I still can’t tell the wolves from the woodsmen.
You Were Not An Aquarium BoySea-glass became your bones,
brine your blood, and seashells
melded into your skin.
You were not quite an ocean
when you said "This is your sign to love me."
My body was like a building;
tall, cold, almost unbreakable.
I was metallic and sharp,
towering over your waters.
I remember taking your hand in mine,
conch and coral shells scrubbing
my skyscraper wrists, and laughing
about how one day you would
submerge every last bit of me.
Your lips, riddled with argonauts,
found my cheek and I cringed
at the coarseness.
You asked if they bothered me
and I finally told you "I
think I love you."
