we blinked.

a memory,
of
you in a forest
with dreams freerunning

and
wild
animals
with pants

and
grass could be purple
and
hang from clouds.

and did you forget
that trees are
built
for climbing? 

never.

and higher-and higher
‘can I go higher?’
is not scary
just farther from
their ground.

yes sir.

and
that’s
important
too,
just because.

and another thing
if you

were not meant
to climb,
with monkeys
roots would be
where your
rockets
are.

Its good to know
important stuff,
like that clothes
fit backwards too?!
and
does anyone
anywhere
really want
to deal
with buttons
and
zippers anyways?

no matter
or distance
between then
and now
grass to sky
is your domain

and know
that playgrounds
do exist
in your
wilderness.
