A guest submission for the Creativity Challenge! Numbers 1-5-6: a waiter/waitress, outer space, and a pen.
“Outer Space Pen Coffin”
We have a pact:
By day we wait tables
By afternoon we’re
Planning our funerals.
Remember, she said
That NASA space pen I got
Last summer on vacation –
It writes upside-down.
Tape it to the lid of my coffin.
You got it, I reply.

The Galumphing creativity challenge was a blast to participate in – I highly recommend it! It is also fun to tell people about it and use the word “galumphing.”
