A compass star floor mosaic
for directions
they smugly think that
they (k)now exactly what
I hardly hint at
and in the very
miss what their NO-ING
plain sightly a-voids
smirking, pat my head
sidestep whole-e-ness
double-down on inarguable be-leafs
label petty quaint the sake-red
entirely mis-take
such assumption allows
all-ways savvy adults
to snicker
though children do not
so few care why
kids remember still
even live close by
to where the shy ones live.
