can I tell you 
how much I love 
the word tantrum 
mur-t-nat is a demon 
which drives one  
crazy and sullen 
if ignored as a mother 
s-might a toddler 
or inattentive husband 
at times when so deserved 

what's with these 
woolen mittens 
left handed kittens 
everywhere 

is the Sun 
too hot I swear 
you had a place for me too 
when all is said and through 
without cages the zoo
seems a fine place to dine 
or be dined upon 
don't you think 
I waited long enough 
to drink 
your after midnight ...
