Again!

My little girl doesn’t want me to read
the story by the avant-garde New York artist.

My little girl doesn’t want me to read
the moral tale based on a Buddhist legend.

My little girl doesn’t want me to read
the nostalgic nineteen-fifties pastiche.

My little girl doesn’t want me to read
the whimsical post-modern nursery rhymes.

My little girl doesn’t want me to read
the reprint of the book I loved at her age.

My little girl doesn’t want me to read
the eco-parable on recycled cardboard.

All my little girl wants me to read
is the book about counting from one to ten.

one-two-three-four-five-six-seven-eight-nine-ten.
Again!

one-two-three-four-five-six-seven-eight-nine-ten.
Again!

Again!
Again!
Again!

Quelle Grammage!
This morning, between the pages of a poetry book, I was gifted with a stranger's reading list. I am really enjoying watching these two poems of mine returning to the earth from whence they are about. 20 new #anticline poemzeens ready to collect at the #chewton dropoff. location in my profile. 
not in chewton? leave a comment and I can arrange for one to be sent to you. Coffee w Holtzmann.
