Always welcome to your home
guests who say they’ll break your “things,”
when icicles are what they mean by “things.”
Run fast after your dreams
Always reach for the sky
Unless we’re in a store with fancy things
Then proceed slowly, palms pressed to your thighs.
If you’re buckled in the back
while we’re driving down the road
and suddenly you make a juicy sneeze,
it’s ok to wipe your nose off with your sleeves.
When we’re playing at the beach
and say, “Look your Sunday best!”
You can be a salty, sweaty, sandy mess.
