Windshield wiper wagging tail
leaves him laughing without fail.
Cheeseball chugging childish girl,
pilot’s pausing his whole world.
Paints with diamonds before bed.
Newspaper tail twitches by crooked eyes.
A step out the window
for a picture
worth a lifetime of words,
in black and white,
like a tail that wags at night.
Diamonds before bed.
Wheel-spun winter wishful mind
swirls back things they’d left behind.
Two-tire traveling trusted soul,
singing something she was told.
Coloring with diamonds before bed
to stir up the silence asleep in her head.
