They Came And Took The Furniture

cotton-mouthed 
at the clearing
puss moth caterpillar 
mimicking flowers
pretending
each lick of the spoon
natural flow un-there
heat lamp row
tuckers quickly
magenta pigment 
lagging pores
not yet baseless
promised prams
wicker and sturdy
not like Egyptian thread
watchdog at base-camp
a little hardened
at the shoulders
still easy to chew on.
