The boy with the curly hair

Sat down beside the dog with the same.

In his hands he had a calendar,

Which he shared with the dog who didn’t care for any dates,

Accept this one,

Right now,

Beside the boy with the curly hair.


(Since when did calendaring become a verb?

What does it mean to calendar anyway?

And why is it called booking, if a calendar is not a book?

Learning to read is hard,

Learn what to read is harder.

But reading together?

Ah, that is a month of Sundays.)
