Runway-straight planks of wood
cut from a tree
like fat from a pig belly.
You clumsy kids, you bang your meaty fists
against them and make them all screwy
and backwards
but that’s all it takes to let the light
in or out, so us big people, we say
“Don’t throw a tantrum”
or we say
“Don’t be a baby”
when really we don’t know anything
you stupid kids don’t
