A Parade of Beast Doodles

when I opened up today

and unwrapped the morning

I found a present


a sky full of clouds

all puff-pomps and shine-streaks

bubble-whites and lace-feathers

a canopy of stipple-shapes

a parade of beast-doodles and

all I could do was

lie down

to skybig

to clouddream

and wonder

what I might unwrap



this afternoon
