MOULE DE MOLDELAGE SOUPLE

Easy to use:  mold, flex, release, 
et voila:
une petite fairy doll, cute as a dream,
compatible with clay, plaster, and craft soap.
No need to take anybody’s rib.
				Fingers are all
that are needed to adjust the body, imagination all
it takes to animate the soul.
			       Somewhere,
over a rainbow made of play-do, 
this doll’s doppelganger plaits her hair.




SCHOENHUT’S TOY PIANO

My first piano was the color of a cardinal,
its song the chip-chip-chip of a bird call.
Outside the window, as I played,
my play-by-color tunes flew too,
as far as I could stretch my fingers, and let go.
