Smile

By Andie Milkis, Park City, UT

you see his face just sitting there,
waiting for you to leave him alone,
he tries to use his big boy words,
goo ,

goo,


ga ga,
his face turns from neutral to blank,
blank as a white board after christmas break,
his face tilts to the side,
as he wonders what you are doing,
he looks uncomfortable,
awkward,

strange,
i tickle his little belly,
he tries to hide it back,
struggling,
piece by piece,
i see the glass break,
he smiles ☺
