I gave her five stars in sound and playability.
She returned the compliment: five in entertainment and replay value.
She valorized my brush strokes and solid rocket boosters
And imbricated the bricolage
With cries of Fill ‘er up! and Play ball!
Along with tee shirts, musical instruments, luggage, shoes,
Weapons, writing implements, purses, jewelry,
Her daughter’s boyfriend did magic tricks with titles and deeds.
Now I lure black widows out of the patio furniture
Lilith practices her tuba
While watching live televised gender reveal parties.
Umbrellas pop open in the closet.
A window falls from the wall.
Every door needs a frame if it’s going to swing both ways.
