Did you ever hear the one….

I got up from a feverish haze to the kitchen and as I passed this caught my eye in the bathroom window. Drawn by my son this morning while singing in the bathroom.

Did you ever hear the one about

getting lost in the past? 

For a few hours she collapsed
Broken out of need
She saw this temporary mark
Something she would do
Out of nowhere
Why’d she stop?
Or so asked the drawing now
on her bathroom window
from her child
but not from her
not redeeming
like it was by her
It is insight
this is what kids play
Infinitely melting
only for now
To kids
the moment is where
it’s all
