Child World

I don't see the glass as half full or half empty,
I see it as a glass that should be filled with chocolate milk.
I see my tiny self floating in the rich milk
I think I know how to swim but
I'm in my Sunday clothes.
Little warm colors.

Look around me, a sinking naptime room.
Look in my little pocket, a book:
"How to make a child world"*

Take the memories
re-embroider them with Relax and Take it Easy.
Find old smells and capture them
Mark the jar Traditional Scents.
Cut the unhappy endings out of cookie dough.
Cut out a pumpkin, cut out a person,
dough is how you cut it (if you don't cut it, no dough).

Gather it up and wash it down with chocolate milk.

Drown it in rich milk.

look at how the pages curl!
