Little Pea
By Barbara Black

I have a pea coat for you. Put it on.
No, we will not go to church, my love.
We’ll lie under the tree and eat apples,
down to the core. Silent leaves will fall
upon our hair. I will gather them
to stitch into pajamas.

Slide your fists through the sleeves. I’ll button you in.
We’ll go to the canyon, throw sticks in the pools,
follow them all the way to the sea’s green mouth.

Raise your face to me. Let me look in your eyes.
I see tiny people in a boat sailing to your home.
Let me blow through my fist. I can send you there.
