only for a minute

Visiting Day

sammie jingled change

in his pocket just to hear the sound

and contribute some

to the conversation….

while zoe clutched his pants

to balance one year standing;

somewhere there was candy…

jen held old woman mother

in her eyes to judge difference

before she checked the time…

while annie ann spied a fly,

buzzed with it ’round their heads
