A Bag Of Books / A Baby Doll / A Box Of Rocks

the first glow a watercolor wash / the stars all refugees now /
we extinguish the perimeter lights /
room lights will blaze until the sun cracks the day open /
ella in her crib / with a bag of books / a baby doll / a box of rocks /
breakfast is cheerios / toast with sprinkles / blueberries / ella brings me her blanket /
maybe she will be an engineer some day /
please don’t make me leave //
