I say silver ink

     like a parasemantic mantra.

          Are you convinced?


I say sphinx

     because everyone like you is

          an Egyptologist


I say snakes & ladders

     a magic square for

          Wednesday’s child


I say linen sheets

     starched w/ moonlight & a dreambook

          under your pillow
