A Child

act-like-a-kid-web-sm1

Little, immature spaces
in otherwise staid timeline
forgetting life a while
cocooned with felicity
I play a child.

Denounce, stark eyed
they concede improper and inane
grown-up going offhand
brush off, regardless
I play a child.

Elfin, naivete soul
spurting glimmer in adulthood
hidden fragments in us all
but only to few buddying benevolent
I play a child.

  1. I had two boys and a husband – I contend all men stay children; and responsibility forces little girls to become women who remember..and know how to play. I like your poem. It isn’t simple..it twists, and jumps, and bounces and runs…just like little boys.
