in sequence shake petals, stamen.
Mother’s own Fruitlands of the mind,
a pebble labyrinth to trace. Across the river
my dreams laugh and smile.
I’m talking up a storm.

I am in your kitchen but
you don’t know where.
Hint: I am in your bread.

Wonder loves reasons,
slept through things.
Unplanned details:
dents, socks hooked
on a nail.

Generate beliefs in a hurry.
I believe in the ice cream lines
of my penmanship paper.
The thrill of the chalk in the pocket.
Happy whales and their destinations.

How well we let ourselves be trained
is only a reflection
of how much we love our master.
