Milk for adults .
Sudocreme for ouchies.
Almond milk/ unclogged arteries,
Fish to avoid meat 👍
Chicken- not battery!
Meat for a treat😋
Spinach to get your greens
Onions – for everything.
Yoghurt – no added sugars!!
Pampers for dry nights.
Washing pods to fill the lines.
Kitchen wipes to kill bacterial signs.
Baby wipes for a gentle clean.
No more tantrum wipes- my next invention.
Toddler sighs in another declension.
Crushing Baby Babog underneath.
Eye contact cringe
The stranger in the dark
The tiger at the door
The lion in the wardrobe.
Future lone traveling
Unknown known dangers
Known unknown dangers…
A spiraling gyre of fear threatens all.
But lying here,
In the bed beside her cot,
I hear her gentle breaths.
I should be elsewhere. Folding and packing, typing and thinking, cooking and critiquing.
Her even breathing quells an inadequacy that has been rising for days.
But pausing, I wonder what will halt this fear when she is grown up and gone away.
