Kiesa Kay: Baby Doe's Lullaby



BABY DOE'S LULLABY

There's a dragon in my coffee cup
so maybe he will help, you see,
the mermaid on the porch is angry
she says her flying monkeys
zoomed to Sumatra without her
I offer her the bathtub
but she prefers the creek
and the otters in the garden
keep singing
the dragon offers his wings
in exchange for her tail
they're still bartering
as I fall asleep
in the rainstorm
