Little Luscious Lips

They all want to kiss me.

 

 

 

They all want to squeeze me because I am soft and cute.

 

 

 

But even though I’m only three, I’m already my own self. Respect me.

 

 

 

You think you can make yourself irresistible?

 

 

 

It is only I. Only I am irresistible. Don’t kiss me.

Iris & the Skirt of Many Fabrics

At a garage sale,

Mom bought a box of batik fabric that someone had cut into small pieces with the intent of making a quilt.

The quilt was never completed.

 

 

 

She bought me the fabric thinking I might use the tiny pieces to make tiny doll clothes.

I have decided that I enjoy piecing the fabric for clothing.

 

 

 

This skirt has 32 different fabrics.

 

 

 

I took Iris to the field across from the school to model it for me.

 

 

 

…& then strange tiredness overcame her, & she lay on the ground, immobile.

Coaticook River Rock Tossing Expedition

It started out in the normal way: a walk in the woods down to the river,

 

 

 

fully clothed.

 

 

 

But, with the toss of the first rock, the first splash wetted their clothing and—

 

 

 

Off it came! Splash!

 

 

 

In to the water with the rocks!

 

 

 

Throw to the other side!

 

 

 

And—

 

 

 

bloop!

 

 

 

It’s good to have a river.
