A Flash 55 Poem

Emperor of the Dawn
Quincy Washington
Used with Permission

Little boy's treasure trove 
Eyeballs skulls shrunken heads 
Fingers with fingernails 

Begin to get the drift 
Dried flowers and snakeskins 
Feathers rainbow colored 

Others too mothers cringe 
Eagle head feathered eye 
Dried sticks and kitten paws 

Trinkets from sister's box 
Borrowed for his display 
Trading marbles for gold 

You love it 
Mother's Boy  
He is
