Remembering Childhood

singing, singing,
La la la

picking up a lizard
-ewww-
and twirling it around
my fingers, cradle
it like a baby

wearing mismatch
socks -shoes on the wrong
feet

rain rain go away
playing in the yard

chasing brother
tryING to keep up

mud puddles
SPLASH!

snack time MMM
cheese and crackers
and chocolate milk

blub-blub-blub into
my chocolate
milk

flicking my tongue
in the space where
front teeth used to be

thssss, thsss,
I’m a thssnake!
