it would be about two
pairs of golf shoes soon to
dance away on eBay,
a Chocolate Sun
spray tanner dreaming of
honeymoons in Hawaii,
and the joy of labels printed
at home today on my brand -new
pre-owned Canon!!!! And…
about a kitten who peed twice
in a dishwasher, then weeks later
boldly returned to the scene.
(luckily no peeing this time.)
I’d show you a mother like daughter,
a wonderful like father like child
(sorry I caught you munching, Honey.
You’re still awfully cute, tho!!
And delightfully hairy, yes!!)
I’d show you a mother like child,
how she makes me laugh and I make
her laugh with unexpected snacks.
(Yes, that’s a marshmallow on a toothpick!)
I’d show you a sister like brother
and remind you friend to friend, love
keeps on going forever and ever.
Yes, if I were to write
a poem today all that and
more would be in it, but
I’m not writing poems
today — I’m eBaying, as
you can plainly see…
and dreaming a dream
within a dream where we are
always children laughing.
