the six-pack is back — bouncing grandies.
“joy acts like a trampoline, everything that touches it bouncing right back off of it.”
the last holdouts at the grandies’ slumber party at peaches’ (my) cottage.
cousins, cartoons, baby golf, talking dogs, books,
made-up group stories, pizza, mac ‘n cheese, apple juice, suckers,
stuffed animals, laughing, whispers,
sleeping bags, pillows, pj’s, flashlights,
and not much sleep.
“no one looks back on their life and remembers the nights they got plenty of sleep.”
