We never spoke in rhyme

it starts with a twist
and then it flies

I kept the bugs in
plastic margarine containers

And daddy at the laundromat
sat with his knees propping
a musty Popular Mechanics
while the clothes went round

It takes a long time to chip away the stone
my feature will only come forth in the earth

it starts with a twist
and then it falls

My hands were small
for the work they did

We never moved in parallel lines
or swooping arcs that intertwined
We never made the bluebirds sing
we never spoke in rhyme
