when you take it all away.

What’s left?

chestnut shells on the floor…..fondly remembered friends visit

piles of  sleeping bags……leftovers from the family sleepover, drifting off listening to this

confetti everywhere……laughter still ringing through the air

upturned laundry baskets……racecars

tiny wires scattered while Mama asks ‘what are these from’……..we made our own transistor radio!

I would like to shout, ‘Clean this mess up. Go play outside. Give me some space!’

It’s frigid outside, sledding and rambling in short bursts.

It’s fun.

It won’t last forever.

I am, I really am trying to not act like a scumbag don’t worry, somewhere below the ‘superstar’ lurks
