Advice From Certain Fairies On Foreclosure: Shutdown? Shrink Down.

with your last twenty dollars
(ten at the dollar store)
buy the best doll house you can
(preferably furnished and with vintage wallpaper)

go out to the woods and set it down,

preferably, not on an ant hill.

put all your groceries outside on the moss

with the fridge so they'll still be giant size later.
next, turn three times round and pray

to shrink down to fit inside.

(be sure to hold the dog in your arms
when you do this,

your children by the hands).


open your eyes.

you're home.
