escher poetry — [O] :: 5

image: read the poem!

my boytime goal
my lifetime role
help the flowers smile

careers adviser
said not me
i’ze too flighty

said there’d be
good jobs for me
building mighty roads

so here i am
a cat man
on my day off

i want to know
where roads might go
my boss said no

he said i’d be
too flappity
“better a digger driver”


so tell me
when d’ya see
butterflies build roads

power blocked me
from being my be
couldn’t suss my me

so here i am
a cat man
every day is off
