Tittle: Where did the night go, p. 29

I bake it

In a biscuit

And someone came along

While I wasn’t looking

And  stole it away

I had planned

To take it

For Show-and-Tell

Naked I would unveil

My prize

The moon would dress me

In moon dust

The stars settling over

My head

And you with your arms


Would awake me


In the light of day

While the night made its way

Into the kitchen

To become

Morningn pancakes
