All the genuine, deep delight of life is in showing people the mud-pies you have made; and life is at its best when we confidingly recommend our mud-pies to each other’s sympathetic consideration. ~ J. M. Thorburn

We made our mud-pies well before dawn.
Our delight is in the very numbers of eyes
Half-pie eyes turning in light from inside
Their  lids not falling yet , into the abyss.

We  make mud-pies for each other's view.
Their soft roundness is delight to our eyes
And a deep joy to feel to our gnarled fingers.
Your roundness of pies is a smooth joy too
And is highly recommended for neighbors.

After we go,  please  do not forget to view
Our pies slapped on the city's broken walls
Amid hurried graffiti , bits of cinema posters
Well  before they flake off of excessive sun.
