Ev'rywhere

 Next Poem          

Ev'rywhere is wonderland
Ev'rywhere is life,
In Auntie's rubber garter-band
As in the whole wide land.
Ev'rywhere obscurity.
The child becomes a father.
Not much later, maybe five
Minutes later ends the strife.
Ev'rywhere eternity.

Blowing softly on a snail
Makes him shrink into his shell,
Dropped in cognac, mixed with ice
Lets him think he saw white mice.
