Day 18 -- Neologism

What Would I Call You?

What would I call you if you came with longer ears
and blue-spotted skin, if you had silver eyes through
which you'd smell the world in living color? If you
had wrenches for fingers, oh handy man, and wheeled
toes? I'd still love you. I'd still call you darling.
Ah, me. The mother of convention.
