THREE MUSTARD CUPS FILLED WITH HONEY
BY MY GRANDCHILDREN AT HIGH CAMP
Two white plastic spoons, three white cups,
on the honey-blond table filled with sunlight.
One cup missing the spoon.
What's different about these cups?
Do you remember this test from your childhood?
The pressure it brought with it,
to find what's different? To find it and see it?
We're there now, boys and girls.
Remember the test booklet?
The table filled with sunlight is pine.
Morning sun draws long shadows
towards the light source.
This is not every which way.
Nothing is rushed. Honey-central.
A surrounding story of astonishing child-mind.
