Sprinklers and double Dutch

Standard

Sprinklers and double Dutch
A childhood left much
To my own invention

Hot pavement underfoot
Songs from nursery books
Left permanent impression

I learned rhythm, I learned rhyme
And how to waste time
Sparking lifelong obsession

Just a neighborhood girl
Whose ropes and words twirl
Skipping in all directions

Rain Barrel

Standard

I am weighed
I am water
I am 54%
I am teary
I am pouring
I am loud
I am running off
I am in the gutter
I am gushing
I am overflowing
I am rushing
I am exceeding
I am excessive
I am unconfined
I am boundless
Be my rain barrel
You’re firm, rigid
Hold me
Let me push against
Your form
You’re solid, steady
I yield my fluidity
Next to you
I take shape
You’re empty, dry
Let me fill you in
Drench you
Deluge you
Together let’s dive
Into fuller purposes
Together let’s sink
Into a pool of
Resolutions
Drip
Drop
Sploosh
