A guide to warm days

Pick a daisy, feed it to a tortoise.
Point at the sun like a caveman.
Refuse to take your jumper off,
where socks that stink. Forget
about rooms you don’t like.
Eat cereal at night. Draw
a giraffe on bathroom tiles.
Feel rage and joy deep enough
that you don’t know where
they came from.
