A pink baby is ideal, its silk

skin synthetic. In a corner,

a tree is potted

in a plastic basket.

Skyscrapers are shaped

like lychee. She can wear

her suede in the rain.

The gris-gris get their giddy-up.

Make imagined magic.

Cups and flowers are all made

of paper. So is tea. Only

the milk is real.
