A Busy Boy

Richard & Esther Provencher

Lug a bag of loose bones
to the bookstore, so
grown-ups can notice
those secret shapes

my teacher told me
when you are young
you’ll have weird ideas
on what is fun for
little boys

pickles and pigeons, even
roaring lions make my
nose nervous, but
karate kicks help me.
