for a two year old who loves to run around the house
half-naked with his hands in the air yelling,
“Party time. Party time.”

coming in the front window.
I squint to look out and quickly close my eyes again,
trying to ignore just how dirty my windows are.

I bake a second batch of heart sugar cookies
to take to Grandma’s house. Why do I torture myself?

we place a Valentine in each student’s box,
a grin spread ear to ear on Rylan’s face.
Oh, to be four again.
