aki aki

the monkey say say
“aki aki” from a tree
made of your ribbon

i know how it is
tied it to another boy
he showed me the knot

you two glorious
lonely kite strings are tied and
tethered to a phone

ring ring ring hello
the monkey say say “aki”
once twice then hang up

“aki” means no calls
no calls to your ribbon tree
baby the rules changed
