Poppa Papa

Grandfather bedrock

Come to me in a dream

Tell me what to do 

Spoiled and solitary,

I will defer to you.

You set

My soul afire

In a peculiar way

Like I can’t resist toasting

A marshmallow over

A campfire;

Restrained by the 

Circle of stones 

Caught up by the twigs,

Setting confections aflame,

Reluctant to blow them out.
