2021 Poetry Marathon, Hour 11

Went with the text prompt for Hour 11. Not my favorite, but this is what I got.

In her pretend forest ranger fantasy
she wore periwinkle gumboots
and yellow ribbons

Every afternoon she’d dance
between the skyscraper trees
and skip past squirrel-run storefronts
on her way home to have sourdough toast
with a marmalade spread

Along the way, the clouds would rain glitter
so by the time she got home she’d be sparkly
and ready for sleep
