One must make a distinction however: when dragged into prominence by half poets, the result is not poetry, nor till the autocrats among us can be “literalists of the imagination”—above insolence and triviality and can present for inspection, imaginary gardens with real toads in them, shall we have it.

The Sunday Mini-Challenge ~ A Love Letter
I was introduced to the performance poetry of Sarah Kay by one of my students. With a few minutes to spare at the end of a lesson, I was showing the class clips of poetry and when this was suggested I immediately thought: What a fun prompt for Real Toads.
Write a love letter from one inanimate object to another.
New poems only for this prompt please.
