battle arena for baby brothers
dance floor for sister’s dolls
keeper of coins yet to be counted
carrier of clothing spread and novels read
cover for cash and valuable deeds

what stimulant of discordant dreams
what altar of opposite function.
Adversary of civilized men
petrified in dry cement
like an acorn thrown in reverie
these words the seed of artistry.
