Rachel Abramowitz

This time I will play the moon, and you can play
The undiscovered minor planets.
Wear this footprint costume and mark time in the living snow.
You can play the river and I will wear the steam hat.
Clove oil for the toothache this will cause.
Be fair as only tragedy is fair.
I can only stay this one night, now.
