Household Songs: The Brief and Unremarkable Life of Joseph Clarence Strauss/III

Dazzling under a golden pansy,
deceptively smooth arms
lazily beckon our inquisitive mimic towards sparkling
white porcelain.

But when four fingers meet,
small sanguinary seeds
sink into a waiting puddle of warm,
milky water.

Two-year-old children are a curious bunch!
