How they t

                   m 
                       b 
                            l  
                                 e 
                                      from my mind─
        these words─ 
Like unruly children
                                      quickly running to recess. 

I want them to play a game with rules. 
"No", they say, SPORTING on the page;
"Come be our playmate.
"Don't line us up in S 
                                I 
                                N 
                                G 
                                L 
                                E 

                                F 
                                I 
                                L 
                                E." 

I try so hard to tag them 
As they scurry  
Left                          and                                right                                                   
Before my eyes.
