I Like The Wishbone
I like the wishbone. The frailty of it
and the way it breaks, its whiteness.
I especially like the way we can earn
wishes out of it if we snap it correctly.
I almost always win the wishbone snap.
Some of the wishes which have pranced
my way are:
a faerie wand, a rainbow unicorn,
a purple dragon with orange eyes,
a generous leprechaun.
Wishbone snapping lessons? Sure.
I could teach you if I trusted humans,
but since that is impossible, I will now
fade back into the treetops, and you
must pretend we have never had this
You do not want lithium do you?
