after Daniel Kharms

beginning with a line sort of from Daniel Kharms

the trees sway their tippy-tops
the walkers walk in colourful socks
gathering bits of forest stuff
while their boots smile and nod

after Kharms

we’ll stop looking
   walkers go walking!
we’ve opened our eyes
   viewers go viewing!

we’ve stopped watching
   walkers gone walking!
we’ve closed our eyes
   viewers gone viewing!

give us the spunk to walk
   gummy pines
give us the guts to stop
     foamy burns
