For you who would like to slow down and get clear:
Today I shall mosey
instead of march.
Today I shall dance
’til my legs give out
Rice Krispie treats to all of the
children and women and men
who need a little snap, crackle, or pop,
or a mom to tuck them up into her great lap,
kiss the tippy tops of their heads,
and tell them a story
about talking bears and soup pots that never go empty,
about dark forests and beds as big as boats
with enough space for everyone
and then play
their next best notes.
