Our Very Own Dance

She picks her nose in front of me
and I think of our lips touching.

She snatches the snack-pack from my hands
and I laugh till I wet myself a bit.

She licks her fingers clean
and I am tempted into helping.

She runs her mouth dry from talking
and I just want to keep listening.

She groans enough-is-enough
and I can't help but keep going.

She assures me that I am enough
and I commit to keeping her glowing.

She says she can't feel her heels and toes
and I say you have been dancing.

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
