Literal Arts

Twenty-four hours,

seven days, twelve

months every year.

Moons rise and set —

planets spin and whirl,

children run and play.

Dinner, breakfast,

lunch. Daily snacks,

picnics, barbecues.

Home repairs, child-

care, overnights —

vacations, holidays.

Carpools, snow-days,

bedtime stories. Back

rubs, no-naps, alarms.

Boys, boots, balls, 

girls, toys, tools —

men and medicine.

Stretch, sigh, search:

extra-credit, extra-

curricular activities.

Domesticated arts,

humor, joy, school:

release — creativity.
