When I am with a 3-year-old
everything is RIGHT NOW
We aren’t worried about yesterday, or tomorrow, or next week.
We aren’t holding any grudges.
We are just doing whatever we are doing, this very minute.
Help me to meet you as a very three,
to put away all the dizzying swirl
of my plans and my schemes
and my very important resentments
and just sit next to you.
