I have trouble
making the words stand still -
I get them all
dressed and looking perfect
and just when the
camera flashes, one
bursts out crying
(that one has always been
a little shy).

I have trouble
making the words stand still -
just when I think I have
everything in
place, I find they
aren't - they've disappeared
(getting out of
order is one of their most
favorite games).

I have trouble
making the words stand still -
they are wound up
and are bouncing off of
the walls in a
hyperkenetic zoom
of cheetah speed
(I can't keep up - no more
sugar for them).

I have trouble
making the words stand still -
they gotta fight
and argue over who's first
and who is next -
so on and so
forth until I'm ready
to scream...CALGON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have trouble
making the words stand still -
they've been stuck in
the pen all day and now's
the time to play.
Awwww...what the heck, I think
I will join them
(I've been working too hard
any damn way).

(c) 2005, Karla Dorman.
