Screamed at you, something stupid, don’t remember.

Hated myself then, but so proud of you, sat there, all cuteness and calm confusion.

Hung skewered on your smart little frown, watching your gears whirl and click, working out this stupid lesson I taught you.

Wished I could claw back this sour little moment, gone now, become you forever.

You reached toward me, palm out like a traffic cop, mumbled around your binky and turned away, “mean dada, go.”
