Absolved of my needs

I am free to make wishes in the lab

behind my house.

 

I will give one to a neighbor,

one to a frenemy,

one billion to the child in his cradle

listening to his box being built

 

You, baby, need a wish from each of us

to buy the days needed to learn to spell your name.

 

I will make you premium wishes

in the truest shades of purple,

with gossamer threads of longing

unraveled from rainbows.

I will seal each wish with the cool light that shines off

the stones in the brook.

 

Each wish can purchase a minute or a moment.

I will package them in pods of 9.

 

Sister Mercy be kind.
