When Parents Leave...

Eyes follow
hands point
tears fall

we distract congole
dissuade accomodate
"Let's look out the window"

"Let's play on the floor"
ba ba ba boom
now he's alone on the floor

tears, we say
"you're a big boy
let's walk around

what else is in the room?"
aaannn aann an
"did you see this...

on the other side?"
Oscar and his mom come around,
waiting for his sitter to go to the park.

And we take Jasper for a
very long walk and the big boy
sleeps happily in his stroller.
