When I was a baby,
I loved to play the “Why?” Game
driving my parents crazy
“Mommy why do we smile?
“Why do we sleep at night?”
But when I couldn’t fit into baby socks anymore,
the questions got louder
I started playing a different game,
the “What’s the point?” game
and you cannot win at this game
the issue is that
once it starts
it can get so dark
to find an exit.
But then my sister’s belly grew so much over the summer,
And now I have baby socks on my nightstand
smelling like baby powder
They gave her my name
Maybe you can win at this game
Maybe it’s not too dark,
Maybe it’s just too bright you cannot see.
