day/poem 19

-- worth repeating --

you see things
given that awe
is your default

that pigeon's neck is green
you tell me
and shiny
i teach you the word 'irridescent'
tell you it means like a rainbow
and you shout your excited 'yes'
tell me how the pigeon's neck
is beautiful, how everything
is beautiful
don't i agree?

you wonder if dandelions roar
ask me because
of course
i know everything
i tell you of course
dandy lions roar
though they're always sure
to do so gently
so as not to upset their
carefully set manes

you agree that
have far too much time
on their hands
