“like no other” by L.K. Thayer

pieces of me
I’m the fast girl
the one with the quick wit
the one that’s ready
steady
go cat go
I’m the fence hopper
the tree climber
the meow mix of catnip
and turtleneck
 
the barn brawler
the scarecrow
the dog and pony show
the bareback rider
the one that will curtsy
and take a bow wow wow
 
I’m the one that’s
fashionably late
the one with the inside track
the snow plow
the skate board
a meal on wheels
fix me up a hot portion
of steamy left overs
raked over the coals
 
the other woman
on the other side of the bed
in other words
 
I can scrabble
with the best of them
 
in other words
there are no words
in other words
 
like no other
