This is Why We Drive Them Everywhere

This is Why We Drive Them Everywhere

Sometimes I’m just astonished
by how splendid these children
have become

I can see in the tilt of her head
the generosity of his laugh
vast dimensions they already hold
unfolding daily; impossible geometries

all I want is to float beside them
enjoy each moment, each exhaled breath
and bask in what gorgeous creatures
are emerging – but that

would be creepy.
so I smile and say only

“Yes, sweetheart.
We can talk more later,
if you like.”
