bleak dandelion oasis mudpie

Posted to Action Poetry

oh no offense taken
at all, i didn't really
perceive what you said
the way you thought
i perceived it, in any case
i was thinking about a
bleak dandelion oasis
mudpie, something i
learned from my kids,
i pay more attention
to what they say anyway,
the fountain of wisdom
aflame in a young girl's
eye, screeching like
a magpie, totally in tune
