Lady Grey Tastes Like Fruity Pebbles

Lady fingers and angel dust

the magic of imagining that

we are loyalty in a foriegn land

where dragon bones lay silent

in its defiant defense of

its capturers enraptured heart.

For the room of the child

is as mobile as their mind

malleable and unique as

a creations they celebrate with

in their land of pretend.

I look forward to the day

when I can while away my

lazy afternoons with my

exuberant, life-loving daughter

who will grow up far too quickly

and perhaps share revelry with

a son who tosses embarassment aside

to gather up the precious moments

of gay innocence and loving ease

before he becomes a warrior

fighting the battles of will

Ive already won through my trials

and when my warnings

fall upon deaf ears

as they did when I played pretend

with my favorite person

on this chaotic planet.

I like this

and perhaps share revelry with

a son who tosses embarassment aside 

to gather up the precious moments

of gay innocence and loving ease
