magic mules...


when i was little
      my neighbour was merrill
               we used to chat
  over the garden fence
                     and play together often

i was so jealous of merrill
she had fairytale
sparkly plastic play mules
they were super fantastic

i longed for a pair

                         year on year
                   i sent wishes into the air
                                   and yet
                             i never got my mules




this chad valley moneybox
from the same era
brings back these memories

                                                     was there anything
                                                  you coveted
                                                       as a child
                                               and never got?
