‘Yellow Pebbles’ (troiku)

walking down this path
careful not to step on cracks
look at that black cat

walking down this path
life’s journey on a crescent
cow jumps over moon

careful not to step on cracks
as pressure points expose face
underneath the cake

look at that black cat
yellow pebbles highlight night
assailant escapes
