Spoken like a true champion of all things
toddler. The tonguing of gums; sharpened
with the edges of newly acquired toofs.
The boundless playground of your imagination
reminds me of a time when I could get away
with yelling and running around in circles;
conquering the world one recess at a time.
I miss having winned all those battles. My toofs
are all grown in; no more second chances.
