We Say Pop
The snowman was my first Earthling.

The sky fell on his rocky hillock.   
We exchanged nods.  I offered aluminum foil.

He said he lacked an omnipresent character.
I checked my bag.  I found a peach

and took a bite and placed the fruit in place  
of his coal arch.

He sang of love, and the grossness of white.

His eyes were deadpan.  Crows sprouted
from his arms and hands.

In my bag I found a battery.  I took a bite
and placed the cell in place

of the tomato in his chest.
He sang of love, and the grossness of white

until he melted into pools of Sprite.  
I held out my arms.  The crows whispered.

I held out my arms.
