Come right up and

Cart on home

A bucketful

Of sugar shorn,

In colors that will

Gladden hearts

And sweet treat joy

To pull apart.

Kids tend to be

The eager ones

But some quite grown

Still think it’s fun.

There’s no mistaking

Intelligence

In this aubergine

If only for how

Its spectacles

Intervene

In order to prevent it

From becoming

Cuisine.

If you’ve a parcel

To post

Or a letter

To hurry,

There’s a zip line

Ahead

So please

Do not tarry …

There is plenty

Not amusing

For this bovine

To project,

When she’s placed

Right where her cousin

Is being served

As steak.

When the last class

Let’s out

A world away

In monk school,

Or New York City’s

Next block,

Teachers

And play-ready

Children

Heft their bags

Smile to match.

Baby Seated

In the shade

Out of sun

I am still

Having fun.

Even these

Stubborn bubbles

Will stop

Giving me troubles.

I’ll persist

And resume

Turning a chair

To a play room.

If all train seats are taken

And the ride is still long

Why not pull out a beach chair

You happen to bring along

And with paper at hand

Lounge like where you belong?

It was down

To the wire

To find glorious

A perch,

As the skies

Drew around them

A gray dome

As church.

One does not need a plan

To get lost

In this new town

She thought

Right before

She did.
