Oxymoron

Stefan Brandt

What is an Oxymoron?

A phrase in which two words contradict each other

Falling Up by Shel Siverstein

I tripped on my shoelace

And I fell up--

Up to the roof tops

Up over the town,

Up past the tree tops,

Up over the mountains,

Up where the colors

Blend into sounds.

But it got me so dizzy

When I looked around,

I got sick to my stomach

And I threw down.
