Another poem from the book MOXIE DAY and Family!

Paying Attention
Sometimes I like to sit and think 
of weird and wacky things, 
like goats with capes 
and coats for grapes 
and phones with wedding rings. 
Then other times I lie around 
and have the oddest thoughts, 
where clowns made kings 
wed worms with wings 
and tie themselves in knots. 
Then when I have to concentrate 
my mind will get all funny, 
and chocolate rains 
on subway planes 
and the moon is dipped in honey. 
The worlds that wander through my mind 
are worlds that don't exist. 
But there's not one 
that isn't fun 
so how can I resist?
