Displacement

According to your good friend Joy, a poet floating
in a river of stars, to demonstrate displacement

picture your childhood. Fill a bathtub with mood rings
and pet rocks. Disrobe. Climb inside. Picture everlasting

lifeboats and ether oars. Disrobe. Climb inside. Collect
mood rings and pet rocks. Smile, you’re a child named Joy

floating in a river of stars. Here’s your everlasting lifeboat.
Climb inside. Finish this poem. The one about ether oars.
