Nearly New

    This page is only lightly speckled

    With a pen nib’s

    Tap tap tap


    And this skin is only quietly freckled

    With six summer weeks

    Of something not quite white

    One spiked lemonade

    And two white jean knees

    Painted green

    And poured over this skin

    Is cool cotton

    White, uncreased

    And very nearly new
