Hey! My name is Keith Larsen and I use pareidolia to create characters I see in everyday objects.

"Pareidolia is the tendency to perceive a specific, often meaningful image in a random or ambiguous visual pattern."

We've all seen faces in things before, I just decided to turn them into my own creatures and give them stories by writing poems for them.

I Create Characters Out Of The Faces I See: Part 2

I’m the drunk octopus looking to fight.

Fear the left hook and the jab of my right.

You’re at an advantage, my eyes are offset

Yet I’ll surely win this one, I’m the safe bet.

Even with six legs behind my back, this’ll be no match

But I can’t leave this wall, I’m stuck, I’m attached.

Love can open many doors

We're often used to open albacore.

I'm Jan, and this is Fran.

We've been told no, again and again

Many against us, our life is a sin

But in the end, love always wins.

I'm Ellie D, the amphibious illuminator.

The frog that toggles on during a power failure.

I'm not green like Kermit, and I don't tell jokes

But, keep me in mind next time the electric croaks.

I'm a dandy dapper dampener.

Fires tickle my fancy, those are no match for me.

Remove my monocle you must, for the water to flee.

When it comes to parking, I know I'm a nuisance

But when your dog pees, I'm somehow translucent.

I'm a damn dampened hydrant.

Slow and steady wins the race.

That's not the case when it comes to this face.

Tracking your time, waiting for it to expire

The shell on my back being a parked cars tire.

Your times running out, telling you is my purpose

This is my role, as a parking meter tortoise.

I'm just a bag takin' a drag

Greaser hair, pull string flair

I'm not full of myself as I may look,

I'm filled with your belongings, like pencils and books

Give me a chance doll face, I'm not a cheater

We'll hold hands at the drive-in theater.

Ting tang walla walla bing bang.

You'll be healed by these words I sang.

I'm a rusted rake, a trusted fake.

Hiding behind my mask as you take the medicine I make.

I collect all that is natural, dried leaves and all.

Homeopathy is the term, if I recall.

My tines are feathers, oxidized from the weather.

Come to me, the witch doctor, so you can feel healthy and better.

Did you hear the news? Pull down my ears is how I'm used.

Newspapers are what I dispense.

Be up to date with your current events.

Look at new gizmos and gadgets, clothes and jackets.

Just about anything worth to mention.

You can call me Yorker, your yellow news dispensing gremlin.

WOAH, all this traction can cause a fire!

Braking so hard losing tread on my tires.

I’m there for every drag, I love to race.

But this is my face when I come in the last place.

I’ll win next time, my bearings must be tighter.

Remember my name, Bicyclist Rick, the astounded bic lighter

A yawning morning monkey, yearning for caffeine.

Senses not so keen, for this waking groggy coffee fiend.

Hoo hoo ha ha, that first cup was great.

That productive primate mode, we all can relate.

Ba da ba ba ba, energy all day long it’s not gonna quit.

Bananas and coffee, breakfast of chimpions, and I’m lovin’ it.
