In an instant of extreme toddler tiredness,
my daughter asked,
Can I wear
I would love to, if they wouldn’t ruin her back
and maybe turn her bony four-year old ankles
into hurting, falling on the floor.
I love when we, people
and our shorter people
coin the next new hot phrases
out of tired “his-maps”, you know, “miss-haps”?
like when I call Peter and Lori,
“Leter and Pori”.
even though it is a rainy mess outside,
I would very much like to wear
and dissolve into fits of “taugh-ler.”
