It’s OK, it’s only Mark again

It's OK, it's only Mark again poem by steven james humphreys

It’s OK, it’s only Mark again

the little ghost child who teases

he pitter patters running through my hallways

pounding on the walls

scratching crayons

penciling in his artistry

one time, he drew a cat

a very lovely cat

with beautiful golden eyes

it meowed, licked its fur and curled

up in a ball and took a long nap

Mark named him curly

I told him it was a good name

and that I’d never paint over his drawing.
