Don’t kick or head-butt
your brother at all,
unless he transforms
to a soccer ball.
When we’re playing at the beach
and say, “Look your Sunday best!”
You can be a salty, sweaty, sandy mess.
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.
Run fast after your dreams
Always reach for the sky
Unless we’re in a store with fancy things
Then walk slow, palms pressed to your thighs.
