As a child I liked to play school
Downstairs in the red-tiled playroom.
I prized my chalkboard,
icon of newly-met knowledge.
 
Today I was both teacher and student:
only children must fill in the blanks
with imagination on rainy days.
 
Today’s lesson was words
made more palpable and intriguing
with each silken rub of the chalk.
 
“the”
                        a single handclap
                        or stamp of a delighted foot
“tiny”
                        finger cymbals meet twice:
                        ting-ting!
“mystery”
                        a measure of waltz-time glides
                        over the linoleum
 
 
Suddenly,
I am dancing
