Yellow

Across the desk
pencils
from a blue vinyl case.

Yellow:  from France
has a perfect point
and bite marks down
its hexagonal profile.

Each morning
life is shortened
sticky snatchy hands

circle squiggle suns       three flowers
daddy’s nose     four bananas    and a smudge
car.

Its works will never be displayed
in the Louvre.  The pieces hang
on seven fridges.
