Kit Kelen #296 - hopscotch


with a piece of chalk
and just the road
make castle and town
a forest reflected
or clouds of the dark

hear thunder!

look up
to look down

same as the night sky
scratch in this frame

or simply draw a door
walk down the stairs
as you think them up

aren't you the little god of it all?

no, no – you never know what's next

turn that sky over now gingerly
make sure it's a good long stick you've got
it's quite right you should be afraid
of every wonder under there


  1. PS er um aren't the pics supposed to be x-large boss? :)

  2. I love the child-like nature of this poem! Very delightful - particularly love the stairs you walk down as you think them up.

  3. wonderful final life and in poetry, carry a stick
