Today a plain tulip bud opened
and revealed itself all streaked and pied.
Today a pair of cotyledons unfurled
and an acorn began to dream it was an oak.
A pair of little boys on a sloping lawn
fissioned into twenty-two men
a loud-voiced announcer
and an arena seating thousands.
Two girls and a stick-horse
rode herd on two thousand head
and their hooves shook the prairie
and bruised the delicate sky with dust.
A pen trembled in my hand.
