What did you children do
days before streaming television programs ran?
The lad remembered,
Halting, before emphatically answering,
“I tinkered in the shed”.
Aphonic in exasperation the teacher
coerced a longer answer.
Boy bought to mind grandma’s psychedelic curio
found on a kitchen shelf
known to make uncommonly beautiful patterns
of light caught in crystals.
Fractuals recede to infinity – every twist.
