Prayer

mutter-hummed softly

I control the words,
they don’t control me.
when I move my mouth
I set us all free.

repeat until calm, logical

my heart-soul holds a smiling
dandelion boy
stomp-dancing.
teeth clack-clattering

happily. whole, healthy
biting, ripping
tearing up food.
Wild, winged

rudebeckia,
my forsythia riot
my floral flight fantastic
both rooted and free.

flashing skipping feet.
nutty absolutely
peanut picnicking with squirrels
mashing them with his
fine diamond teeth.

dressing up with girls - stick
fighting with his coy boys. grin faced.
vice and versa, my little Prince
knows more than his place.

mutter-hummed softly

I control the words,
they don’t control me.
when I move my mouth
I set us all free.

repeat until calm, logical
