august break 4: the other view


katie's kitchen window morning early fuzziness,
she likes big bowls and she cannot lie,
and small ones and polka dots;
even the morning colored shadows dropped by leaves
are polka dots strewn across the roof of the little house out back. 
her view is the backyard and down,
mine is the front and out.
