Four On Friday

she’ll be four on friday

head a little closer to the sky

eyes like her mommy’s

who can’t believe in one year she’ll be five

she’s gonna have a party

candles, fingerpainting, storytime

and the other children

will come dressed as penguins... it’s a surprise

aquarian dreamer

on the cusp of pisces by a night

she likes to splash the water

with her hands, her fins, her wings, her mind

got a letter from her auntie

with ten whole dollars tucked inside

i hope you like the jump rope

you’ll be rollerskating in awhile

and all the cards your cousins coloured for you

may they make you smile
