For Mrs. Baby

Blessed Candy
for Tina: Christmas 2009


pristine designs, follow
the leader, the Michaels,

the Raphaels, the Saucelito slims—

Mary, Maya, Liz—

digression is your splendor,

the splendor of derivation,

invigoration,

anticipation, Jesus calls,

brother man, dreamholder,

all the casual fluff

a life can bring, rippling

down the ribcage

through the heart’s

expressways, kisses listed,

joys enumerated,

this dream you hold

holds you, this hold it has,

you have, this river

that flows, flows you

dreamland asks for

nothing less than

that you dream its

trees, its paschalian

bacchanal, its

times within time

j
oy
j
oy to be
j
oy to be near you
vagrant munchkins

could do no less than bless

this candy

your heart’s hands

will do nothing less

than bring your plenty.
