The Second Ark (a poem for children)

there is a school for young children
known as the Second Ark
if I am ever a 4 year old again
I will request the Ark

the kids draw pictures
they cook, they sing and they count to ten in Spanish
they jump on a trampoline to help people
it's just a school but it looks like heaven

if I could graduate from the Ark
I would carry everything in my head
and bring it to the rest of the world

and the dog life world says it's okay

lickin' and sniffin' is quite okay

and he'll whisper that he understands

steeped in the backwoods element she
crouched barefoot in a pool
scooping crystal water with her cupped hands

what she couldn't get into her mouth spilled on
her nose and chin,
trickled down her chest
