She Walked to School Headless

She rolled her head down the hill It picked up speed and lots of dirt and stuff It began spitting out bugs and dust Hey! Didn’t you need that for a math test? Mrs. Peabody, a truly nosey neighbor asked her. The head stuck out its tongue And it laughed. Some people blathered about Trying to insist she put her head back on. She walked to school headless Loving the wind in her neck.

A happy find this is tonight Caren. I love it. Like theatre of the absurd, or what they call an art picture, meaning movie. My mind thinks in images. I see what people say or write. Being a lover of photography and movies, I can clearly see this one, and it brings on a smile.
