curious bubble-gum emerald
a Cracker Jack prize.
a rhymed song merrily sung. and cherrily.
the jeweled meridians…choose.
when what I really want is the Impressionists-
but already the hour glass is breaking apart-
hauling this jar of peach bright pennies home
and this is for the last ones in the Park
never snagging at all
or are they wreathed forever in an enchanted wood.
soon you may want nothing but melting, too.
