D is for Decuain

THIS WEEK’S WORDS come from “Lion” by Tina Chang: chewed, pursued, moved, mother, modern, morphed, rust, taste, waiting, tree, hunger, dappling

Black, white and remnants of gray shoes hanging

On the pole so that everyone can see

Some red, blue, rust and the effect dappling

A boy chewing gum waiting by the tree

Asked his mother for new shoes with a plea

Classic and modern designs to each taste

Pursued with promises for shopping spree

Boy’s hungry so they have to shop in haste

Moving fast with the crowd as they agree

At home with white converse and he’s all glee*
