she does not understand
why the silly poppy, source of way too many, so annoying
funny smelling scratchy kisses, asks her over and over
what is this color of this 'n that,
stopping over and over sooooooooo many times on just one,


and why the foolish man laughs and weeps whenever she says


with deep reflection,
as is her way,
you can see the cogs whirring, she guessing it must be his favorite

but when then he starts giving even more funny smelling scratchy kisses after each


she decides irrevocably,
as is her way,
the next time he asks sheΒ will make a joke to make him stop
and tell him
