ah~ yes. more photographs from nephew Sam's birthday! i guess the post about what actually have happened today (which are fun too) would have to wait. these pictures are better because it is taken by an actual camera and not by a crappy mobile phone. the colour mizes are mroe interesting and it is fun to edit.
|with pretty cousin Loops. we were childhood friends and know plenty about each other's attitude. or not.|
|how handsome. oh, how handsome.|
Since Christmas they have lived with us,
Guileless and clear,
Taking up half the space,
Moving and rubbing on the silk
Invisible air drifts,
Giving a shriek and pop
When attacked, then scooting to rest, barely trembling.
Yellow cathead, blue fish--------
Such queer moons we live with
Instead of dead furniture!
Straw mats, white walls
And these traveling
Globes of thin air, red, green,
The heart like wishes or free
Old ground with a feather
Beaten in starry metals.
Brother is making
His balloon squeak like a cat.
Seeming to see
A funny pink world he might eat on the other side of it,
Back, fat jug
Contemplating a world clear as water.
Shred in his little fist.
