Kristen Gleason

from C. 1980

Plain Åmund doll
In icing space

Clean reflects
A vested babe

Beseeched to eat
Soft polar bread


Åmund doll whacks
Full-up avenue

Silver stand
Of elven head

Perched high
He’s eating news


Spot Åmund doll
Atop our ridge

Run signal beam
To signal run

I saw him cross –
He sank just once


Åmund doll, in a frost,
Pressing kitten’s paw

Shy printer’s shop
Long flaming felt

This side, the sea
His sea on top


Donned Åmund doll
One head of leaf

Melt around
This swell disguise

A simple float for
Ancient herds


Slide, Åmund doll
Slide tight and green

Snap photos of
Illegal themes

Swim-time for girls
They come on knees


Love Åmund doll
With endless clicks

Pastried air and
Legs onscreen

Some time soon
He’ll lie with babe
