"Six cats smoking cigarettes
watch two kangaroos cartwheeling
over three charming chimpanzees"...
words whispered, giggled, gypsied
down telephone line,
exchanged and overflowed with foolery
your face mirrored shock,
final translation received, quite distorted
(I made sure of that).`
Enjoyed watching you clean up
"Sexy sirens swearing
watch two ken dolls kiss
while chugging three champaigns"
(quite smart-ass for third grade!)
into something acceptable. Still doing it,
helping my sorry self get out of scrapes,
you, little Scarecrow, guiding my Dorothy
down life's yellow brick road.
Big sister to my little.
