ABC

arm in arm and awake early
we tip-toed through the alphabet
looking for coincidence
delighting in conjunctions

revelling in combinations
startled at oulipian constraints
singing sounds for fun and
exploring etymology in wonder;

two people who’d just learned to read
we loped around the lexicon
and taught each other how to rhyme
slightly.
