is how its done.’

Tiny hands conduct
the moment
settling on crossed legs

eyes locked on me

the air between us
seems to pause.

I sit
I smile,
I mean who wouldn’t.

I wait like stuffed
toys might.

and I check the
other guests

everyone attends
her words
wide eyed and
silent just like me

elmo, kitty,
and dad.

and when she
‘one lump or two’
my throat
answers way too quickly

quickly retreating

I am a 'flow' seeker. In my day to day work I help students, colleagues, and community members make the most of the moments afforded us through public education. If I am not asking questions, I am not learning.
