In my relationship
with my large dictionary
I have at last chanced across
the generic term for those very young,
pre bow-and-arrow cupids
of Renaissance and Baroque art:
they're pooty (rhymes with booty) ;
one's a pooto (as in owe) .

There's a life-size pooto in my garden.
It's minus the front half of a foot,
and the tip of a wing is missing.

As there's a term for that type of cupid,
I'll ask around
if there's a term for a cupid pissing.
Is one of those chaps a urino perhaps?

A garden putto urino-ing in the coy pond. Who would have thought!

We can always rely on missing parts. They would add to the art.
