HEAD DOODLING BACK
He blew a kiss into the air.
Though I think it was unintended,
I know it's there
His juice was half finished
When he left with his Mom
And the house became strangely calm . . .
The GIGGLES went with him.
And also the BR-OOM BR-OOMS -
The WHAT'S THAT and the WHYS
And the ZOOM ZOOM ZOOMS
Though he'd left his little car and
Jam finger prints on the kitchen wall.
Red heart-like dots . . .
LOVE YOU LOTS . . . LOVE YOU LOTS . . .
Alone - with things in the room -
My turn to "Wait and see"
For the place to be - you know -
Less . . . missing
