Silly Putty


Silly Putty
she threw a handful of silly putty
art nouveau flowered wallpaper
a grease stain the size of a woman's palm
what right did the flowers have to be so cheerful anyway

art nouveau flowered wallpaper
detested when she was in a mood
what right did the flowers have to be so cheerful anyway
her mood as sour as lemons on the tree

detested when she was in a mood
she had not the heart to change it
her mood as sour as lemons on the tree
flowers were mother's favorite thing about the dwelling

she had not the heart to change it
tears held back when thoughts turned to her late mother
flowers were mother's favorite thing about the dwelling
greasy stains too many to count

tears held back when thoughts turned to her late mother
a grease stain the size of a woman's palm
greasy stains too many to count
she threw a handful of silly putty
