my father died last night

 

twirling tutu sequined

like a twinkling orb

tell me you love me

 

orange-haired Troll doll

arms stretched wanting

a gift just for me

 

don’t bother your father, he’s eating

don’t bother your father, he’s reading

don’t bother your father, he’s sleeping

 

ballet slippers’ satin

unscathed by summer’s blistering sidewalk

these little piggys pas en avant (pah ah-na-va?hn)
